TUCSON - Emily Grey Junior High was evacuated at about 11:15 a.m. today due to a gas line break.
Crews from Rural Metro Fire District responded to the school, located at 11150 E. Tanque Verde, and assisted in accounting for all the evacuated students and staff until Southwest Gas arrived to secure the leak, according to RMFD spokesperson Captain Grant Cesarek.
The leak is now secure, and crews from Southwest Gas are completing their air sampling to make sure the school is safe to occupy. Once they have deemed the school safe, staff and students will be able to resume their school session.
