HUNTERSVILLE, NC (WBTV) -

A gas leak forced a Huntersville road to shut down for several hours Thursday afternoon. 

The Huntersville Fire Department tweeted shortly before 2 p.m. that a large main gas line was cut. Firefighters said Bud Henderson Road was closed between Beatties Ford and Gilead Road. The road reopened around 5 p.m. after being closed for nearly three hours, according to Huntersville Fire. 

Firefighters notified Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools to reroute buses and said children's routes may be altered slightly. 

The Huntersville Fire Department said a strong odor of natural gas was apparent throughout the Carrington Ridge neighborhood. 

The gas leak was controlled using clamps, the Huntersville Fire Department said. 

No other information has been released.
