BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Buffalo Public School was evacuated Wednesday morning after an odor of natural gas was detected.
The gas at West Hertel Academy, 489 Hertel Ave., was shut off as a precaution as National Fuel crews determined the source of the odor.
The gas leak occurred about a block from the school on Janice Street after someone struck a gas line, National Fuel spokesperson Karen Merkel said.
The line is being repaired and the situation is safe, Merkel added.
Kids are being returned to the school now.
