NORTH HAVEN, CT (WFSB) – A gas leak prompted some evacuations in North Haven on Wednesday afternoon, and it impacted school buses.

The leak was reported around 2:30 p.m. in the 100-block of Elm Street.

Fire officials say gas crews were working on a high pressure line at the time when either a valve or cap unexpectedly came off.

Roads in the area were blocked off as crews worked to fix the leak.

Fire officials said they checked the gas readings at about a dozen homes. Less than a dozen of those residences were evacuated.

School buses in the area were also diverted.

The leak happened in front of a public works station on Elm Street, officials said.

No one was injured.

Residents were allowed back inside their homes later in the afternoon and crews officially cleared the scene around 7:30 p.m.
