Union St. in West Springfield reopened after gas leak

It's not clear exactly what caused the leak.

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Union Street in West Springfield is back open Saturday night after a part of it was blocked off for about an hour after a gas leak.

West Springfield firefighter Chris Batista told 22News just before 6 o’clock that the fire department got a call for the smell of natural gas.

It was coming from the meter outside of a home at 595 Union Street. Three homes were evacuated, along with the Victory Market.

Columbia Gas was called to shut off the gas and the street was then reopened. It’s not clear exactly what caused the leak.
