      Hueytown City Hall, jail evacuated due to gas leak

      HUEYTOWN, Ala. -- A gas leak forced the evacuation of Hueytown City Hall Friday afternoon, displacing employees and jail inmates.

      The leak was detected around 2:30 p.m. and firefighters and Alagasco crews, including a private contractor, were called to the scene. The source of the gas leak was later found to be a faulty hot water heater, which workers quickly repaired.

      In total, around 40 people were evacuated from the building.

      No one was injured.
