The break occurred around 10:30 a.m., and appears to be related to some contractor work being done along Bridgeport Avenue that has been taking place in recent weeks.

A Yankee Gas worker at the scene said fixing the break should be a “quick” process.

Duchess restaurant was evacuated out of precaution, and Bridgeport Avenue is closed in the area, which is near Stop & Shop.

Someone who works at Burger King, which is across the street, said that fast-food establishment had not lost its natural gas connection.
