ADDIS, La. (BRPROUD) – The Addis Police Department and West Baton Rouge Public Utilities were called to a gas leak at a local home.

The call came in around 11:45 a.m. about the leak on Gladys Dr.

The home was located on just a short distance off LA-1.

According to the Addis Police Department, “a contractor cut into a gas line leading to the house.”

The contractor was trying to run power from the house to a new metal building.

Addis PD briefly closed Gladys Dr. to vehicle traffic but the West Baton Rouge Parish Fire District No. 1 said soon after that it was ok for cars to use the road.

The line has been clamped, cut and connecters have been installed.

Addis PD confirms that 45 minutes after it all started, the leak has been repaired and everything is back to normal.
