WORTHINGTON, Ind. - Officials say a natural gas leak from an underground storage field in rural southwestern Indiana has been capped.

Citizens Energy Group says a well drawing gas from the storage area near the Greene County town of Worthington failed during maintenance work Tuesday evening. High-pressure gas was escaping Wednesday and the leak was reported capped later in the day.

No fire or injuries occurred.

The Indianapolis-based utility said escaping gas had prompted the evacuation of seven nearby homes and the closure of a state highway. It said the loss of gas won't impact service to customers.
