Spire gas company working to identify potential leak near RSA

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A potential gas leak has caused issues with morning commuters and employees at the RSA Tower in downtown Montgomery.

Employees of the building contacted WSFA about a potential gas leak, saying there weren't being allowed in the building.

According to Spire Spokesperson Aaron Schmidt, gas workers were called to the building early Wednesday morning after someone noticed a strong odor of natural gas. At this time, workers believe the leak may be outside the building and not inside and was coming into the building as doors were being opened.

No one has been evacuated at this time, Schmidt says, but one entrance to the building has been closed off as workers try to identify the potential leak.  Once the leak is identified, the company will begin making repairs if needed.

According to Lt. Cups with the Montgomery Fire Rescue, Monroe Street is currently blocked from South Lawrence to South McDonough.

Also, because of the leak, the Capital City Club will be closed. Management says the club will reopen on Thursday.
