BOUNTIFUL, Utah — Three homes and a church in Bountiful have been evacuated due to a gas leak Sunday after crews working on a water main nicked a gas line.

The leak is in the area of 1500 South and 75 East, according to South Davis Metro Fire. 1500 South is closed between 50 West and Orchard Drive.

Chief Jeff Bassett said the leak occurred around 2 p.m. and three homes and one church have been evacuated.

Bassett said there was a water main break in the area, and crews making repairs on that water main “nicked” the gas line.

Bassett said they are working on shutting off the gas, and crews from Dominion Energy are on scene to make repairs.
