SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Crews have mitigated a gas leak outside of Savannah Police Department Headquarters on Habersham Street, officials said late Tuesday afternoon.

According to Savannah Fire Rescue, around 3 p.m. workers were installing fiber optic lines under the sidewalk when they cut a gas line.

As a result, Savannah Police personnel were sheltered in place and roads surrounding the headquarters were closed to traffic.

The gas leak was capped about an hour after the leak. No injuries were reported.
