About 100 passengers and employees were evacuated from a Florida airport after a natural gas leak in a restaurant.

Rort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport spokesman Greg Meyer said in a Sun Sentinel report that two concourses in Terminal 3 were evacuated early Sunday.

Meyer said the closure lasted about an hour.

Meyer said the gas leak came from a restaurant in one of the concourses.

Broward County authorities were investigating what caused the leak.

All restaurants in the terminal reopened when passengers were allowed to return.
