Some residents living just west of Midway Airport had to leave their homes briefly Monday after a gas line was ruptured.

Officials say a water crew working near 61st and Massasoit struck the main.

The gas and water combined to form what looked like a geyser shooting up along the street.

The leak was fixed about a half-hour later at 11:30 Monday morning and area residents were allowed back into their homes.

There were no injuries reported.
