ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - Laclede Gas crews worked well past sunrise to a broken low-pressure main in Midtown Tuesday morning.

According to St. Louis City Fire officials, a construction crew was digging on Vandeventer at McPherson when a backhoe hit a gas line.  Fire crews shut down traffic to the entire block around midnight.  They checked sewers and surrounding buildings, but found no escaped gas.
There were no injuries.  Crews kept a northbound lane of Vandeventer between Lindell and Westminster place closed during the repairs.
