Homes evacuated after water break, gas leak in Addyston


A water main break led to a gas leak Friday evening in Addyston that caused nearby homes to be evacuated.

It happened at Sekitan Avenue and Church Street around 5 p.m. Construction on a broken water main led to an accidental snag of a gas line, which caused the leak.

Crews were able to cap off the gas line. A total of five homes were evacuated as a precaution. 

Authorities said two homes remained without water.
