WASHINGTON -- Washington Gas and hazmat are at the scene of a natural gas leak in the 500 block of D Street in Northwest.

Some evacuations were conducted, D.C. Fire spokesman Pete Piringer said. D.C. Fire is taking readings for gas in several buildings in the area.

People should avoid the area around Indiana Avenue and Sixth, Seventh and D streets in Northwest while workers cap the leak.
