UPDATE: 13th Avenue from 12th St. E. to 17th St. E. is now back open after a gas main leak at 12:08 p.m. on Friday, August 31st.
Officials say a contractor working in the area hit a gas main and then contacted the fire department and Xcel Energy.

Two businesses near the incident were evacuated as apart of the protocol, but are now back up and running.
Crews will continue making repairs for the next few hours.
