Authorities say a natural gas leak in Ashland is now under control.  But Columbia Gas crews are still trying to figure out what caused it.

A number of residents in the 600 block of Sandusky Street were evacuated from their homes before 7 a.m. Tuesday after they smelled gas in the air.  Authorities shut off the area, and eventually managed to cap the leak, which occured near an underground valve.

Homes in the area of Sandusky Street, Lindale Avenue, Evergreen and Race streets were evacuated.

The first leak was discovered in front of 629 Sandusky Street and the second leak discovered at the intersection of Race and Evergreen streets.

Ashland Fire Chief Rick Anderson said strong smells of gas were reported.

"Around 6 a.m. one of our firefighters coming in on duty who lives on Lindale reported smelling gas in the area. The assistant fire chief on duty found the gas leaks near the street and shut down the street. About a dozen homes were evacuated in the area," Anderson said.

Anderson said Columbia Gas crews were able to locate the leaks and gave the all clear for residents to return to their homes.

Barricades were set up closing off Sandusky Street between Vine and Cottage streets.

Race Street between West Main and Sandusky was also closed.

Anderson said most residents has left work before the evacuation. He said residents that were home during the evacuation went to warming centers at the county building and the Kroc Center for shelter.

Anderson said the investigation is underway in to what caused the gas leak.
