WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) -- A call for a gas leak came in a little before 10 am Wednesday morning.

Emergency responders responded to a construction site near County Market and the Holiday gas station.

Employees and customers at the Holiday gas station were evacuated briefly. The nearby streets were closed to incoming and outgoing traffic.

Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) was also on scene. Once WPS determined the gas leak wasn't affecting the Holiday operations, the gas station re-opened.

Emergency responders cleared the scene around 10:30 am.

No injuries were reported.
