KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) About 20 people have been allowed to go home in Kansas City, Kan., after breaks in two natural gas mains forced evacuations.
KCTV reports workers from the Kansas City Board of Public Utilities were digging in the area to replace a water valve when they struck the mains about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.
The BPU says a gas company had marked only one of the mains.
Five nearby homes were evacuated for about an hour before the leaks were brought under control. No injuries were reported.
