Gas leak cancels classes at Faith Middle School

FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) - According to a Facebook post, a gas leak has caused classes to be canceled at a middle school on post at Fort Benning. 

The post, written on the U.S. Army Garrison Fort Benning around 11:45 a.m. on Thursday, said students at Faith Middle School were evacuated to Dexter Elementary School because of the gas leak. 

The post says it was caused by construction at the back of the school and no one was harmed. 

"Parents have been notified that the students have been evacuated via the DODEA one-call system," the post says. "Parents can pick up their children at the gymnasium."

Classes have been canceled for the rest of the day and school officials will be notified of class schedules for Friday. 

"The buses will run as scheduled this afternoon and the other schools are unaffected by the gas leak," the post ends.
