Broken gas main causes evacuation

St. Petersburg firefighters check a leaking gas pipe Monday morning. A construction crew was digging on 35th Street N between Fifth and Sixth avenues when the backhoe scraped the six-inch pipe, said Lt. John Horsefield of the St. Petersburg Fire Department. No one was injured in the 11:30 a.m. incident, he said. Six homes were evacuated for about 45 minutes, Horsefield said.
