Monday morning (Dec. 3) a daycare was evacuated in Lubbock due to a gas leak.

KAMC News reports that a work crew hit a gas line in the street under the intersection of Boston Avenue and Bates Street.

21 kids along with staff members of the daycare were evacuated. The gas line was multidirectional according to Lubbock Fire Rescue, so it would have to be shut off at multiple points to stop the leak.

Atmos Energy worked to fix the leak.
