A gas leak forced an evacuation Sunday at a local apartment complex.

Morganfield Fire Department Assistant Chief John Walker tells WMSK News they responded to the Northside Apartments off of Highway 130 North around 2:30 p.m. after someone reported a strong odor of natural gas. He says ten apartments were evacuated until Morganfield Utilities responded to the scene and repaired the leak.

There were no injuries reported.
