Schools closed after gas leak discovered near front of campus


SHERMAN OAKS (CNS) – A gas leak prompted the closure today of Millikan Middle School and its magnets, according to the Los Angeles Unified School District.

SoCalGas and LAUSD crews detected a gas leak last night near the front of the Sherman Oaks-based school and gas service was shut off while repairs are made, district officials said in a statement.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the school is closed today,” a district tweet said.

The campus is located in the 5000 block of Sunnyslope Avenue

It was unclear when the schools would reopen.
