ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A gas leak has shut down roads in Southeast Atlanta and forced residents of two apartment buildings out of their homes.

The gas line ruptured shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Both Atlanta Avenue and Hill Street were closed while crews worked to repair the line.

Two apartment buildings at 281 Atlanta St. SE were evacuated.

Crews reportedly were burying fiber optics when they struck the line in the Grant Park neighborhood.

Atlanta Gas Light workers were able to stop the leak at about 1:30 p.m.
