The Lafayette Fire Department says they have had to evacuate an area of Verot School Road.

Haz-Mat crews are working the scene of a gas leak in the 3000 block of Verot School Road. A 4 inch gas line was cracked while crews were doing work in that area.   If you don't need to be in that area, please avoid it as Lafayette Police is detouring traffic away from the area.  However, if you have a child at Mini Me Daycare at the corner of Newburg and Verot School Roah, that daycare is being evacuated.  Children are being placed on city buses until parents arrive to pick up their kids.
