An Escambia County school was evacuated this morning because of a gas leak in the building.
Deputy Superintendent Norm Ross says a school employee smelled gas in the cafeteria around 8 am.
A crew from Pensacola Energy found an eroded valve on one of the appliances.
The problem was fixed and everyone was allowed back in the building around 9:30.
Ross says no other repairs are needed at this time.
