Residents were evacuated due to a gas leak on Cleveland's east side Tuesday morning.

Companies are on the scene of a ruptured gas leak that started at 11165 Woodstock Avenue near Martin Luther King Drive, according to the Cleveland Fire Department.

Authorities closed off nearby roads as Dominion Gas worked to shut off the gas line.  

Residents in the area can return to their homes, according to fire officials.
