BLACK CREEK, WI (WTAQ) - An evacuation order has been lifted in Black Creek following a gas leak in the village.

According to the Black Creek Fire Department, a relief valve was frozen open, causing the leak at the We Energies substation at the north end of the village. A call to the Outagamie County Sheriff's Department came in around 5:45 p.m.

Authorities evacuated 75 homes in a half-mile radius of the leak for over an hour. The fire station and community center were used as a warm place for those evacuees to go.

No injuries or damage was reported. The Black Creek Fire Department says people's furnaces and gas appliances were not affected during the evacuation, and that homes did not lose heat during the hour.
