AMORY, Miss. (WTVA) -- Atmos Energy crews are on the scene of a gas line break in Amory.

According to Amory Police Chief Ronnie Bowen, the gas line was cut at Wheel City on Highway 278, about a half mile west from Highway 25.

Chief Bowen says a crew was using a tractor to drill fence posts on the property, when the tractor hit the line.

There have been no reports of any injuries, but some nearby businesses had to be evacuated for a short time.

The roadway was also shut down for about 30 to 45 minutes.

Those workers have returned to work.
