Gas main leak forces evacuation of Blessed Sacrament School, 2 homes

A gas main leak near 14th and Heather streets in Vancouver forced the Blessed Sacrament School and two nearby homes to be evacuated on Thursday afternoon. 

The leak was caused by a vehicle accident around 2:30 p.m. PT. 

The leak was closed off an hour later, but crews are working on repairing the gas main.
