A Phoenix church was evacuated after outdoor plumbers hit a gas line Saturday morning.
Plumbers had been digging behind Longview Church at 1301 E. Whitton when they struck the line.
The call went out as a first alarm because it was such a large structure, Phoenix Fire Capt. Rob McDade said.
McDade said firefighters were able to secure the leak and other than the church, no surrounding homes or businesses were evacuated.
