Broken Gas Line Forces Evacuation and Closure of Montgomery College in Germantown



A construction crew is believed to have broken a gas line on the Germantown campus of Montgomery College Monday morning filling the area with the odor of natural gas and forcing the evacuation and closure of the campus. The gas leak is now under control, but the gas has been turned off to much of the campus. The evacuation order has been lifted, but the campus remained closed until 5:00 pm.


At about 2:00 pm on Monday, Montgomery College announced that the classes would resume at 5:00 pm on the Germantown campus, however, operations offices, such as financial aid or the registrar’s office would remain closed for the rest of Monday. Classes would be open and begin on schedule on Tuesday in Germantown.
