Five buildings in a retirement community were evacuated on Thursday in Papillion, after a construction crew hit a line, causing a gas leak.

The gas leak started around 9:30 a.m. at the Hillcrest Country Estates near 60th & Cedardale.

Five buildings and a total of 52 people were evacuated as Black Hills Energy worked to find the source of the leak and pinch off the line.

It took about 45 minutes to find the leak, which was coming from a 2" gas line.
