Tarrytown school evacuated after gas line ruptures; No injuries reported

A school in Westchester County was evacuated Tuesday morning because of a gas leak.

The school building in Tarrytown is leased out to a county service for special needs children.

Officials say a backhoe ruptured a gas line outside of the building, prompting approximately 50 to 60 students and 20 to 30 staff members to be evacuated as a precaution.

No one was injured.

All students and staff from the regional programs were sent to EF International Language Center on Marymount Avenue.
