A gas leak Thursday afternoon in a line under the intersection of 16th and Crawford.
Just before 4 pm the leak was repaired and those few who were evacuated in the area were allowed to return home.
A private contractor smelled the odor of natural gas and notified officials.
The leak occurred when a 4-inch cast iron gas main under the street cracked.
Vectren says that weather may have played a roll in the crack but it is impossible to say for sure.
