Gas leak forces brief evacuation in Oelwein

Posted:
OELWEIN (KWWL) -

Some tense moments for some Oelwein residents Friday night after a brief evacuation. Authorities say a little before 8 p.m., construction crews hit a main gas line while working on a project in the industrial park area. Those living nearby were told to leave their homes. Alliant Energy crews were called to the area and stopped the leak about 20 minutes later. Drivers on Highway 150 were rerouted for a short time.
