Students at Lockhart Elementary School in Knightdale had to briefly evacuate Monday morning because of a gas leak. Construction crew hit a gas line while repairing a sinkhole near the school around 9:30 a.m.

The students and teachers were evacuated to a library across the street while the crew worked to repair the break. Many of the teachers moved their materials over to the library so classes could continue.
