TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Students at Emily Grey Junior High were evacuated Wednesday morning after a gas line break at the school.

Grant Cesarek with Rural/Metro Fire tells KGUN9 that crews were called to the school at 11150 E. Tanque Verde at about 11:15 a.m.

Fire crews assisted in accounting for all the students and staff while waiting for Southwest Gas to arrive and secure the leak.

Southwest Gas was able to secure the leak and after they finish air sampling to make sure the school is safe, students and staff will be able to resume their day.
