EL PASO- Emergency crews spent part of the day directing traffic after a gas line ruptured in East El Paso.

The accident happened about 11:00 a.m. today on Burgundy near I-10 and Americas.
The fire department says a construction crew ruptured the gas line and the TxDOT camera shows how traffic backed up as a precaution. Nobody's hurt and the gas line is repaired now.

Make sure you dial 8-1-1 before beginning any digging project. It can help prevent situations like this.
