Knoxville (WVLT) - Students are back in class, following a gas leak late this morning outside Sarah Moore Greene Magnet School on Brooks Avenue in East Knoxville.
Authorities say maintenance crews were mowing the grass this morning when they hit a gas meter, causing a valve to open.
KUB and KPD responded, shutting the gas off immediately and the school was evacuated for about 15 minutes.
No one was injured.
