KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Authorities are working an area near Kansas University Medical Center due to a gas line break.
Emergency crews arrived at the scene near 39th Street and Rainbow Boulevard around 11:30 a.m. Monday, where a health education building is under construction. A contractor reportedly cut a 2-inch gas line. The break is on a branch line, not a main line.
The Hemenway Life Sciences Innovation Center and A. R. Dykes Library were evacuated as a safety measure.
Authorities said the incident only affects the University side, and will not impact the hospital or emergency services.
FOX 4 is at the scene and will have more as details emerge.
