The leak was fixed by 2:15 p.m., the Orem Department of Public Safety reported.

As a precaution, police had asked neighboring Mountain View High School to lock down students while authorities confirmed none of the gas had leaked into the school.

The lockdown lasted less than 10 minutes, school officials said.

No injuries were reported.
