NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A fuel line near Nashville International Airport (BNA) was damaged Monday morning, causing a large fuel leak.

According to BNA, the pipeline was damaged by the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) during road work near BNA Runway 2R/20L.

The damaged fuel line is operated by Colonial Pipeline. The line was shut down, and responders from Colonial were dispatched to the area.

It's currently unclear what type of fuel it is that leaked, but the line that was damaged is an automotive fuel line that doesn't feed into BNA. The affected Runway was also already closed for the day for scheduled maintenance. As such, at the time of this writing, no flights are impacted.

Colonial Pipeline is still working on the damaged line, and are releasing updates as they make progress.

This is a developing story.
