LEBANON, Mo. (KY3) - Crews in Lebanon fixed a gas leak that led to the evacuation of residents.

The leak happened along Washington Avenue between Bland and Stiller. Summit Natural Gas stopped the leak after about four hours.

“We quickly determined that there was gas in the stormwater system,” said Sam Schneider of the Lebanon Fire Department. “And so as soon as that was discovered, we immediately went door to door and asked citizens in about a block-and-a-half area to evacuate out of an abundance of caution.”

The evacuation lasted only a few hours.
