Crews secured a minor gas leak at Cane Bay High School this morning.

A faint gas smell was detected in one of the school’s hallways shortly after 10 a.m., Berkeley County School District spokeswoman Susan Haire said.

S.C. Electric & Gas crews, firefighters and the district’s maintenance department repaired a faulty valve, which was determined to be the source of the leak, Haire said.

Crews inspected the school and no other gas leaks have been found, Haire said.

Students in that hallway were moved temporarily to the school’s auditorium, Haire said. Those students are now back in class, she said.

The school used a call-out system to notify parents and to let them know that students are safe, Haire said.
