A gas leak in east Windsor caused the evacuation of several homes Wednesday morning.

Union Gas was called to assist Windsor Fire & Rescue Service in their response to a gas leak at a home at 842 Homedale Blvd.

Firefighters closed a section of Homedale Boulevard between Wyandotte East and Ontario Street, but it has since been reopened.

Union gas officials say the leak came from a source inside the home.  Workers shut off the gas supply to the home.

The home has been ventilated and the area is safe.

Union Gas says the specific cause of the leak has not been determined. The fire department is investigating and Union Gas is assisting.
