A portion of 9th Street between Virginia and Center Streets was reopened after crews stopped a large gas leak that occurred late Tuesday morning. 

Reno Fire says the leak happened when demolition debris fell on a main gas service next door, causing the gas line to break, close to where several historic homes are located.

The gas leak was first reported just after 10:35 a.m. 

Reno Fire, Reno Police and NV Energy assisted with the incident.
