Calhoun Street has been reopened following a gas leak. 

Charleston police say the gas leak was near Meeting and Anson streets, and has since been repaired. 

On Tuesday morning, crews responded to a ruptured gas line in front of the Mother Emanuel AME Church.

The gas leak was caused when construction crews working in that area dug into a line, according to the utility. 

Dispatch says the leak was called in at 8:13 a.m. The Charleston Fire Department also responded.

Buildings in the immediate area were not evacuated.
