KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A gas leak has been reported in downtown Kansas City. 

Neighbors at 8th and Broadway Boulevard in Kansas City have been evacuated due to the leak. 

The leak was initially reported at 9:30 p.m.

Crews were unable to make repairs overnight, saying they needed to wait for sunlight before starting the repair process.

Officials say the leak came from a line break along the street and that they will likely have to shut down one lane of traffic between 8th and 9th street along Broadway Boulevard while making repairs.

Crews have not said how long the repairs will take.

The cause of the leak is unknown.
