KANSAS CITY (AP) - A dozen homes in northern Kansas City are evacuated as a precaution after a construction crew hit and ruptured a 2-inch gas line.

Firefighters were called to the scene around 12:20 p.m. on Wednesday after the gas line was broken.

A two-block radius around the rupture was evacuated and the leak was capped a short time after the line was struck.
