All-clear after gas leak forces Minneapolis evacuation

MINNEAPOLIS — Residents are being allowed back into their homes after a gas leak forced a 12-square-block evacuation of southwest Minneapolis.

CenterPoint Energy crews were able to safely shut off the gas leak Wednesday.

Officials gave the all-clear after monitors showed gas levels in the area back to zero.

No fires or injuries are reported.
