LAYTON -- A natural gas line leak forced fire crews to evacuate five homes in the area west of Layton's Main Street on Thursday.
Layton Fire Department and Clearfield emergency officials responded to a call at 1:17 p.m. of a natural gas leak at Antelope Drive and 2200 West.
A break in a 4-inch gas line occurred as a result of construction crews doing some street boring, Layton Fire Public Information Officer Doug Bitton said.
Questar crews responded to clamp the line, while fire and police personnel evacuated five homes in the area "as a precautionary measure," Bitton said. No injuries were reported.
The gas leak, which had crews on-scene for several hours, slowed both lanes of traffic on Antelope Drive, which had been reduced to a single lane through the area, Bitton said.
By 6 p.m., the evacuated residents started returning to their homes.
Train service through the area was not disrupted.
