Gas leak causes evacuation of two Des Moines stores

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Two Des Moines metro stores had to be evacuated after a gas leak.

It happened at the Dollar Tree on Merle Hay Road around 8:15 Sunday night.

The Des Moines fire chief says when last week's snow was being cleared from the back of the building, a gas line was knocked loose.

Fire fighters evacuated Cece's Pizza and the Dollar Tree as a precaution.

No one was injured.

Mid-American was called in to shut off the gas.

Both stores are expected to be back open Monday.
