PHOENIX, N.Y. -- Phoenix residents are back in their homes after they were evacuated due to a gas line leak Saturday night.

It happened at a substation along Chestnut Street that mixes natural gas with a separate chemical. No illnesses were reported in that area.

All roads in the area, including 481, were shut down for about three hours. The fire department says the situation is under control, but investigators aren't sure what is leaking from the pipes.

"I couldn't tell you which one it was, except that the way it was coming off and the force it was coming off, we felt it was the natural gas end of it itself," said Phoenix Fire Department Deputy Chief Dan Dunn.

National Grid says there were no service interruptions during the incident. The line causing the problem was owned by a separate company, National Fuel.
