A natural gas leak forced the evacuation of several Omaha homes Friday morning.

A plumbing contractor working on a sewer project cut into a six-inch gas main near 19th and Corby around 10 a.m. MUD was called in to turn off the gas.

Once shut off, workers had to go into over 100 homes to relight pilot lights. No injuries were reported.
