TUCSON - The gas line fire near Apollo Middle School is out and the gas line has been shut off.
Apollo Middle School parents who wish to pick up their children may pick them up at the athletic field at Liberty Elementary School, but they must take Drexel Street to enter the area.
That's according to Mary Veres, with the Sunnyside Unified School District.
Veres says students and staff at Apollo Middle School have been evacuated to the South athletic field at Liberty Elementary due to a construction site accident that occurred on Nebraska Street.
The students are safe and there is water and nursing staff with them.
Nebraska Street and the areas around Apollo have been closed so emergency personnel can take care of the situation.
