Gas leak forces evacuation of LeRoy Township neighborhood

LEROY TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) - A gas leak forced evacuation of homes in the area of Brakeman and Route 86 in LeRoy Township.

Although the leak did not impact Leroy Elementary School, Riverside Local School District Superintendent James Kalis canceled afternoon kindergarten classes at the school.

He said re-routing of traffic on Route 86 made it difficult to get in and out of neighborhoods.
