Massillon Gas Leak Leads to Home Evacuations

(Cleveland) - Crews are currently working to repair a "large" natural gas leak in Massillon Tuesday.

The leak occurred on the south side of Walnut Road Southeast, across from Fresh Mark. The city says the line ruptured after crews working in the area struck it.

While no injuries have been reported as of yet, residents are asked to avoid the "dangerous" area at this time. Several homes have been evacuated, with those living in the area being invited to use the local rec center as a temporary shelter.
