A gas leak was capped in the Fresno County town of Firebaugh.

Police and the California Highway Patrol say Highway 33 was blocked from Bullard to Morris Kyle Drive while the repair was made.

Firebaugh police say a tractor was disking a field, and clipped a main pressure gas line in the area at about 10:30 Thursday morning.

The high school, which is about a quarter mile away, was put on lockdown for a short time.
