Gas leak prompts short evacuation near Platteville

A gas leak forced several people out of their homes on Saturday night. It started when a car crashed into a pipeline near Weld County roads 53 and 24, near Platteville. Crews from Anadarko, which owns the line, were called in to make repairs. Authorities also shut down nearby roads and evacuated about five homes nearby. They were allowed back in around 9 p.m.
