Day care evacuated after gas leak

CARTERVILLE, IL (KFVS) - Some pre-K kids and their parents had some scary moments in Carterville Thursday.

Some contractors working on a new church next door hit an unmarked gas line and caused a leak.

That prompted a quick evacuation of the kids from the Williamson County Early Childhood Cooperative.

The kids were bused out of the area while Ameren crews worked to cap the gas leak.
