Emergency crews have wrapped up work on a broken gas line on 25th Street South in Fargo, south of I-94 near Cenex.

Fire Officials say the call came in just before 4:00 p.m. Once the Fargo Fire Department, Fargo Police Department and Xcel arrived on scene, fire officials say 25th Street between 18th Avenue and 25th Avenue was shut down. Residents living in nearby homes were also evacuated to make sure they were safe while fire crews used equipment to check gas levels in the area. 

Fire officials say it took about 45 minutes to contain the leak, return residents to their homes and open the road to traffic.
It's insult to injury along Fargo's biggest construction project this summer. 
 Emergency crews are working on repairing a gas leak on the stretch of 25th Street South that is undergoing major renovations. It happened south of I-94 near the Cenex convenience store.

Several detours surrounding 25th Street and Interstate-94 are already in place, and the break will likely only add to the congested traffic on a busy Friday afternoon.

Crews say they originally thought a water line was hit, too, but realized it was just water coming up from the ground. Xcel Energy is finishing up the repair and the road is back open to traffic.

Valley News Team's Mellaney Moore is on scene and will have the latest at 5:00, 5:30 and 6:00.
