Workers sever gas line in east Belleville

Workers near the corner of McClintock and Virginia avenues in Belleville broke a two-inch natural gas line.

The break happened at about 11 a.m. and war repaired quickly, according to Ameren spokeswoman Kelly Hendrickson.

"A contractor hit the pipe but we were able to take care of it in about half an hour," Hendrickson said. She said gas has been restored to the residents affected by the break and that no one was hurt during the accident or during the repair work.
