(Miamitown, Oh.) – Miamitown Elementary School was evacuated after a gas leak this morning.

 

The leak was discovered at 8:00 a.m., before most students had arrived. All personnel inside the school were told to exit the building.  

 

Students and staff were not allowed inside the school until the leak was fixed by Duke Energy crews at around 9:00 a.m.

 

The leak was blamed on a bad relief valve.
