Poplar Grove School Evacuated

Another area school is evacuated today due to a gas main leak.

Students from Poplar Grove Elementary were taken to another school in the district. This after a gas main was hit while crews were tearing down a nearby church.

Just as a precaution everyone was evacuated but the Boone County Sheriff's biggest concern was the school and officials say everything was taken care of and everyone is safe.

School will reopen tomorrow.
