An underground natural gas line at 112 Bidwell Parkway that was fractured by a private contractor doing a driveway job was clamped off Wednesday by National Fuel crews and Buffalo Fire Department crews.

About 30 residents had been asked to leave the immediate area after the pipe was broken, but all of them were allowed to return about 6:30 p.m.

There was no fire and no reports of any injuries.
