MIAMI (WSVN) – Streets were shut down in Miami after a gas leak broke out.

7Skyforce hovered over the scene as crews worked to contain the leak.
There has been construction, as well as demolition, going on in the area for some time.
It appeared that a worker, using a backhoe, hit a gas line, which caused it to burst.
In the meantime, traffic in the area was at a standstill due to emergency vehicles blocking the roadways.
