Drivers forced to detour today after a natural gas line was hit - it happened on Highway 24 in Falcon this morning.

Utility workers say a contractor hit an unmarked line while digging near a Diamond Shamrock near Meridian and Swingline.

The highway was shut down while the line was fixed.

A nearby learning center was on alert for possible evacuation but they were able to stay inside the building.
