Loveland residents whose homes were evacuated after a natural gas line rupture were allowed to return home early Saturday morning.

About 100 homes in southwest Loveland were evacuated Friday after a work crew accidentally cut a 6-inch gas line.

Xcel Energy employees worked through the night to repair the line.

A shelter was opened at a middle school for people who couldn't stay home.

Loveland Fire Department spokesman Dan Engelhardt says the ruptured line serves areas west of Loveland, including Estes Park.
