ST. LOUIS, Mo.- A natural gas line ruptured Wednesday afternoon, forcing a precautionary evacuation near the 100 block of North Euclid around 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday. 

The area affected is a nonresidential area, although more than 100 people were evacuated, and the gas line was shut off minutes after the break occurred. 

The rupture was caused by construction work being done at the site. 

Laclede gas is currently handling repairs of the ruptured line.
