Chesapeake, Va. - A natural gas leak shut down a section of South Military Highway overnight.

The Chesapeake Fire Department got the call around 12:30 a.m. this morning.

They say they found a leaking gas valve at Dominion Virginia Power's Elizabeth River Power Generation Facility.

It took firefighters about an hour and a half to stop the leak and re-open Military Highway. 

No one was hurt.
