In Suffolk, everyone is back in their homes, after being forced out because of a gas leak on Thursday.  

Officials say a contractor told police a gas line was damaged on Burnetts Way. That's right off Godwin Boulevard.

It happened around 3:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon. Police evacuated nearby homes while Virginia Natural Gas crews fixed the leak.
