Buildings evacuated near Joe's on Weed, 900-block of West Weed Street

June 18, 2012 (CHICAGO)

The Chicago Fire Department evacuated the buildings on both sides of the bar Joe's on Weed Street after a two-inch gas main break.

The fire department evacuated a few other businesses in the area because it is a significant pressure gas line that was struck.

Hazardous materials teams are on the scene.

Authorities say high winds are helping disperse the gas.

There have been no reports of any injuries.
