Lexington officials said a gas line that was hit by a construction crew on Buena Vista Road Friday morning resulted in the evacuation of a motel.

Investigators reported the gas was quickly shut off after the one-inch gas line was struck.

12 rooms in the Baymont Motel were evacuated for around half an hour while the building was ventilated.

Crews said there was little gas in the building and nothing inside was flammable or explosive.
