PREVIOUS: Hopkins County emergency officials are working to contain a gas leak in Morton's Gap. Eyewitness News has a crew on the way to the area, but we've been told the leak is just off of Highway 41 on Ed Brackett Road.
As a result of the leak, a four mile area area around the leak has been evacuated, and Hopkins Central High School has already dismissed students for the day. Emergency workers say it will likely be several hours before the leak is capped.
