Gas Leak Prompts Downtown Indianapolis Evacuations

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): A natural gas leak in downtown Indianapolis has led to about 20 people being evacuated from an apartment building and some street closures.
       The leak was reported about 2 a.m. Monday in the northern part of downtown, near the city's main library.
       Fire Capt. Rita Burris says utility crews were working to shut off the gas, which was coming from a plastic line that's inside an old cast-iron pipe buried under the street. She says firefighters were at the site as a precaution.
       Burris says the apartment building residents were offered shelter in a nearby building. Streets within about a block radius were closed
       Utility officials said it might be midmorning before repairs can be completed.
