An area around 145th Street and Baring Avenue in East Chicago that was evacuated earlier this afternoon due to a gas leak has been lifted. City officials gave residents the “all-clear” just before 3:30pm. The leak was reportedly the result of a contractor striking a gas main in that area. As a precaution, Benjamin Harrison Elementary was put on lock down and no injuries were reported. The surrounding two blocks around 145th and Baring Avenue were closed to traffic as a result of the gas leak.
