Atmos energy and Temple Fire crews are working on a gas leak in Temple.

About 8:56 a.m. Thursday, crews were digging near Key and Scott on 31st street when they hit a gas line and ruptured it.

The leak has been stopped and it will be some time before the line can be repaired.

Businesses in the area of Loop 363 and Scott & White will be effected by the gas interruption.
