MCKEESPORT, Pa. —

Students at a McKeesport middle school were evacuated to the district’s high school because of a gas leak Tuesday.

McKeesport School District spokeswoman Kristen Davis said all students from Founders Hall Middle School were taken to the high school and were in no danger.

Officials said a construction company hit the gas line on O’Neil Boulevard. It was not immediately clear when the line would be fixed.
