KEENE, N.H. (AP) - Authorities say a gas leak in Keene has been fixed, and that neither homes nor a nearby school were affected.

Liberty Utilities reported gas readings Friday morning on Russell Street both in the street and the storm drain system. Gas was detected in about half a dozen manholes, but home basements in the area were clear. The occupants of the homes in the immediate area weren’t home. Officials at Symonds Elementary School were notified but the school continued normal operations.

The utility was able to locate and stop the leak about three hours later.
