Biloxi medical office evacuated for possible gas leak

There were some anxious moments at a medical office in Biloxi late Monday morning. Patients and employees at Pace Medical Plaza were evacuated briefly after someone noticed a strong smell of natural gas.

Biloxi fire and police quickly responded. Police officers blocked off traffic at the complex, located at 180 Debuys Road.

Following a thorough inspection, firefighters did not find any leak or any problems. The people were allowed to go back inside the building less than a half hour after it was evacuated.

Firefighters say maintenance crews at the medical plaza will continue to check the building for any issues.
