Residents have been evacuated from the Lewis Street area of Florence, near Steen's Creek Drive, because of a gas leak. Police are diverting traffic no one is being allowed into the area.

Atmos Energy crews were on scene, trying to get the gas shut off.

Robert Leslie, with Atmos Energy, tells us people doing work at the house broke the riser that is attached to the gas meter.

The leak only effects one lot.
