VENICE (WWSB) - A gas leak forced authorities to evacuate an area of Venice Thursday morning.

Around 8:30am, a gas leak at Tampa and Nokomis Avenue forced a nearby theatre to be evacuated and motorists and citizens were asked to avoid the area. It’s unclear what caused the gas leak, but there is construction in the area.

Teco Gas went to the scene and after an hour and a half clamped the line.
