Small Gas Leak Causes Evacuation

DAVIS JUNCTION (WIFR) -- A small gas leak caused a section of a Davis Junction neighborhood to evacuate.

Everything appears to have gone back to normal after argon gas was accidentally released from a rail car on Route 251 near Route 72, says one board member.

Hazmat crews were called to the scene and investigators ended up evacuating about five homes.

Crews are currently trying to determine what caused the leak.
