A natural gas leak on Keesler Air Force Base has been repaired, allowing the base exchange and commissary to reopen.

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A crew working on a construction project on base ruptured the gas line around 7:30 Thursday morning. Keesler officials say the gas line was not marked.

The base closed four buildings closest to the leak to make a safe perimeter for the repair crews. No one injuries have been reported.
