CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

Fire crews have evacuated four Chesterfield homes for a gas leak on Meadowdale Boulevard.

The leak near the intersection with Dalebrook Drive was reported around 11:55 a.m. Crews have shut off one gas valve and are working to shut down one more. The leak appears to be coming from a Richmond gas line underneath the road. Utility crews will have to dig into the road for repairs.

Six residents were moved to the Meadowdale library, but should be able to return home while the work is completed.

Part of Meadowdale Boulevard is closed for repairs.
