MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - An area of south Minneapolis was evacuated after a municipal work crew punctured a natural gas pipeline.

CenterPoint Energy spokeswoman Rebecca Virden tells the Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1NIQyId ) a city water crew struck the line at around 8 a.m. Monday. It caused the closure of some streets nearby and evacuation of two houses.

No one has been harmed by the leak.
