Gas Leak Forces Richmond Evacuations

Evacuations are under way in the 2000 block of Monument Avenue as a result of a gas leak in the area.

It appears that a worker struck a natural gas line in the area, Richmond Fire officials said. At least 40 homes in the area were evacuated, but have since been let back into their homes.

No injuries have been reported.

Fire and gas company crews are expected to remain on scene until the gas dissipates.
