(KMOV) – Crews were attempting to repair a gas main break in north St. Louis County Friday morning.
Officials say a street worker was digging in the 5800 block of Helen in Berkeley around 9:40 a.m. when he struck a gas main, causing the break.
Helen was closed to traffic while crews worked to fix the leak. Officials say it may not re-open for several hours.
No residents were evacuated.
