The Dollar Tree headquarters in Chesapeake was evacuated on Wednesday, Nov. 1, following a report of a damaged outdoor gas line.

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — The Dollar Tree headquarters in Chesapeake was briefly evacuated Wednesday morning following a gas leak.

Capt. Scott Saunders of the Chesapeake Fire Department told WAVY.com crews were called the company’s corporate offices on Volvo Parkway just before 10:50 a.m. for a fire alarm.

This was changed to a small gas leak before crews arrived. Virginia Natural Gas was already there and had taken care of a leak outside the building.

Crews checked the property before clearing it around 11:15 a.m.
