Aurora Fire and Rescue says officials have responded to two gas leaks Monday, and citizens continue to report odors.

The first call came in around 3:30 p.m. for a leak at Davies Drive and Oak Hill Way. Officials said Xcel fixed the leak in about an hour.

Shortly after, crews closed eastbound Colfax from Ursula to Potomac due to a gas leak. Aurora Fire said there isn't a danger to the public and Xcel is investigating.

Aurora Fire says multiple people are reporting smelling a gaseous odor throughout Southeast Aurora. They're investigating, and at this point, no threat has been found.

There haven't been any evacuation orders but all walking Fox Ridge Middle School students were held after school for parent pickup because of the leak near Oak Hill.

There haven't been any injuries reported.
