WEST HAVEN, Utah - Residents are being allowed to return to their homes after a gas leak forced evacuations near 4600 S. and 4700 W.

A total of seven homes in and around a cul-de-sac were evacuated as a precaution.

Construction crews severed a 4-inch gas line around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, sending gas into the air. The wind blew the gas toward homes, prompting the evacuation.

No injuries have been reported. Questar crews checked out each home and evaluated it for gas levels before residents were allowed to return.
