Gas leak near Lux Middle School

Posted By:  KLKN Newsroom

First responders (LPD & LFR) are currently investigating a gas leak near Lux Middle School.  The leak, discovered at 1:45pm,  is at S. 79th Street and E. Pointe Road.

Fire fighters are contacting residents in the area.  School officials are notifying parents of Lux students by phone (via robo-call) with instructions for dismissal.  Please be aware that traffic is being directed to the north of the school.   If possible, citizens should avoid the area.  

At this time, Lincoln police do not know how long it will take to contain the leak.  We anticipate that school dismissal, at 2:58pm, will be affected.
