Eight to ten homes have been evacuated as a precaution because of a gas leak.

The leak was reported at about 10:10 a.m. at Oak Meadow Drive and Pinedale Drive in Colorado Springs. That area is north of Powers and Union.

Springs utilities says a contractor was doing some work when they hit the line. Crews are working to repair the damage.

The fire department is asking drivers to avoid the area, if possible.
