MidAmerican Energy crews determined a gas leak that lead to 10 mobile homes being evacuated was caused by a gas stove that was unhooked.
A spokesperson with the company says no one was in the home where the stove was disconnected, and crews are venting out the property. They also determined gas levels are at a safe level.
Repairs are expected to be complete on Thursday afternoon.
No injuries were reported from the leak.
