Gas Leak

WILMINGTON -- Officials blocked off roads and evacuated eight houses after a Wednesday afternoon gas leak.

The leak was actually in a house near the intersection of 17th Street and Church Street. Officials say the house was 100 percent full of gas.

Officials are investigating two possible causes of the leak. They think construction crews hit a gas line or the leak was caused by someone trying to steal copper.

The leak has been patched and crews are monitoring the house while it airs out.

No one was injured.
