Crews in Hopkins County are on scene of a gas leak.
According to the Madisonville Fire Department, someone backed into a gas meter at 147 South Hopkinsville St. in Nortonville and it's spewing gas.
Authorities initially thought evacuations would take place, but once they arrived and assessed the scene further, residents in the area were ordered by the Nortonville Fire Department to stay inside their homes.
An Atmos Energy crew was called in to cap to the leak.
Fire officials tell us South Hopkinsville St. is blocked off at East Walnut while crews work.
We have a crew at the scene and we will keep you updated.
