A gas leak on India Street briefly closed traffic and businesses there for less than an hour Friday morning.

The gas leak was reported about 9:35 a.m., said Portland Deputy Fire Chief Keith Gatreau. A utility company on the scene was digging in the area, and struck the 1½-inch line with a piece of construction equipment.

Gas was shut off quickly, and the area was reopened by 10:20 a.m.

Three buildings were briefly evacuated in the area, but were opened after firefighters found no leak in the area.
