Crews are on scene of a gas leak at Fountain Middle School on Monday, Dec. 20. Students were evacuated and then sent home.

On Monday morning, a gas leak was detected at Fountain Middle School. Students inside the school were evacuated to the football field outside by noon. Public service and Fountain Fire Department vehicles arrived to block off the parking lot and assess the situation.

Black Hills Energy and the Fountain Fire Department recommended an early release for students, whose winter break is scheduled to begin Wednesday. At 12:40 p.m. Fountain-Fort Carson District 8 buses transported students who normally take the bus to their homes. As of press time, District 8 is sending all other students home (parents who normally transport their children will pick them up at 1:30 p.m.).
