Wise County Courthouse Evacuated for Sewer Gas

The Wise County Courthouse was evacuated and shut down Wednesday afternoon. Fire and Hazmat teams responded to the courthouse to initial reports of a gas leak.

Wise County Sheriff's Office officials confirmed that a roof exhaust motor failed in the building, which allowed sewer gas to accumulate throughout the building.

The maintenance staff are working to replace and repair the exhaust.
