A gas leak at a north suburban senior home was fixed Thursday night.

Six of the residents at the Claridge Healthcare Center in Knollwood had to be evacuated from the home because of the leak and the fact that there was no heat in the building. The fire chief says those residents had special health issues and had to be taken to the hospital.

The gas leak was fixed and the heat is back on.
