Gas leak forces 12 homes to evacuate, closes road in Derry

DERRY - A gas leak closed a residential area and forced the evacuation of several homes.

Officials told NH1 News that 12 homes were evacuated in the area of Sivestri Circle a little after 10:30 a.m. Homes on Nesmith Street and Chester Road were also evacuated.

Fire officials were called to the scene to battle natural gas that leaked after a main was hit by crews drilling a hole.

The road was closed for a little over an hour, and people were able to reenter their homes shortly after.
