BAKER - School administrators said a gas leak forced them to evacuate Baker High School for less than an hour Monday morning.

Superintendent Herman Brister said the leak was spotted around 7:20 a.m. and led to a brief evacuation. He said students went to the locations they learned through fire drills.

Brister said the gas was shut off and students were able to go back to class a short time later.

He said they're assessing what caused the leak and don't have an estimate on what it will take to fix the problem.
