Monroe Street store evacuated by gas leak

The Walgreens Drug Store, 4580 Monroe St., was evacuated for nearly two hours yesterday because of a natural gas leak, a Columbia Gas of Ohio official said.

The company was notified shortly after noon about the leak. The store was evacuated until a crew shut off the gas, Chris Kozak, a spokesman for the utility, said.

Customers were allowed back in about 1:40 p.m., Mr. Kozak said.
