Several residents were evacuated from their homes in Normal Heights Wednesday after a construction crew hit a gas line, causing a leak.
Officials said a 1.5-inch steel main gas line was broken by a contractor just after 9 a.m. along 37th Street and Monroe Avenue.
As a result, some brief evacuations were ordered.
About an hour later, crews were still in the process of trying to cap the gas leak.
No injuries were reported.
