Gas line leak closes city school

An elementary school in northwest Baltimore closed early Monday due to a nearby gas leak.
Calvin M. Rodwell Elementary School located at 3501 Hillsdale Road closed early due to the leak at a construction site close to the school.  
A message on Baltimore City Public School’s website said staff should report to Forest Park High School. 
BGE spokesman Aaron Koos said a contractor struck a 2 inch gas line around 10 a.m. Monday. Fire and hazmat crews responded to the area and shut off the line at 10:51 a.m. 
Fire Department spokesman Ian Brennan said no one was injured in the incident.
BGE is working to repair the line and restore service to the area.
