No one was injured during a gas leak at a home in the 300 block of McWilliams Drive in Harrison Monday morning.

A portion of McWilliams Drive was blocked off to traffic for about a half hour, according to Harrison Township police. No one was evacuated.

The 11:30 a.m. leak occurred when a customer of Peoples Natural Gas was working in his yard. The man pulled a shrub in his front yard out of the ground, the roots of which were attached to a gas line, according to Peoples Natural Gas spokesman Barry Kukovich.

The gas company capped and shut off the resident's gas line shortly after they arrived at about 12:30 p.m., Kukovich said.
