Emergency crews have capped a gas leak that prompted evacuations in an Oklahoma City neighborhood Wednesday afternoon.

According to the fire department, just before 1 p.m., firefighters responded on a possible gas leak at a 8-plex residential building in the 3400 block of N. Robinson. 

Fire crews evacuated the 8-plex and surrounding structures.  One person did complain of headache, so EMSA was dispatched to the scene. 

Firefighters stretched hose lines and strategically placed them just in case a fire was to begin.  An Oklahoma Natural Gas crew responded and was able to shut down the one and half inch gas line. 

No other injuries or illnesses were reported.  Firefighters are now picking up their lines and preparing to go back in service.
