BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

A gas main break shut down MetroLink trains in Belleville and caused an evacuation of an apartment building Monday.

A contractor working near the intersection of N. Church Street and Bristow struck a gas line around 2:45 p.m.

MetroLink service to Memorial Hospital Station, Swansea Station, Belleville Station, and College Station was stopped for around one hour, but has since resumed.

Other details were not immediately known.
