Norfolk, Va. – A building at Norfolk Commerce Park off Military Highway has been evacuated after a gas leak.

Fire crews say contractors working outside of the building in the 2500 block of Eltham Ave. struck a 1 1/4 inch gas line that served a large number of buildings in the park.

Crews from Virginia Natural Gas and Dominion Power are on the scene and working to restore service.
