  • Bridgeton gas leak (KSDK)

Bridgeton, Mo (KSDK) -- Around 18 people were evacuated from their homes Tuesday morning due to a Bridgeton gas leak.

A spokesman for Laclede Gas says a contractor hit a small gas service line on Beaverton, which is what prompted the evacuation.

The line has since been repaired and evacuees were allowed back into their homes.

One home was affected by the leak, but Laclede Gas says they should have gas restored in the next few hours.

Police said not a lot of people had to leave their homes because most people were at work.

NewsChannel 5 will have more information if it becomes available.
