A gas line break in downtown Tulsa caused some businesses to be evacuated Friday morning. But the leak was quickly fixed and everyone was let back in.

Two businesses had to be evacuated after a city of Tulsa backhoe, working in the area of 7th and Troost, hit a four-inch gas line. The gas to five homes also had to be turned off.

Authorities say there was minimal danger of explosion because high winds ventilated the area.
