DELTONA, Fla. - A natural gas leak led to the evacuation of seven homes in Deltona Tuesday, according to Volusia County officials.

Construction workers said they accidentally ruptured a six-inch gas line Tuesday morning on Deltona Boulevard near Normandy Street, which was shut down.

Officials said the leak is under the road, so it could take a few hours to fix.

Residents were allowed back into their homes later Tuesday afternoon.
