COALVILLE, Utah — Two schools in Summit County were evacuated Monday afternoon after a gas leak.

Students from both schools were evacuated and sent home.

The gas leak left a strong odor but did not spread beyond the schools. No residents had to evacuate, officials said.

Emergency crews and Dominion Energy were on site. No injuries were reported.

It is currently unknown how long the schools will remain evacuated.
