Two stores were evacuated near Cross Creek Mall after a natural gas leak outside in Fayetteville Tuesday evening, fire officials say. The incident was reported just after 7 p.m. at a shopping center at 5075 Morganton Road, which is just across from Cross Creek Mall, according to a news release from Fayetteville fire officials. The odor of natural gas triggered firefighters to respond to the area. A natural gas leak was confirmed at an outside meter. T.J. Maxx and Staples were evacuated “as a precaution,” the news release said. The gas leak was stopped and the two stories reopened. No other information was released.
