    Prince George's County firefighters have evacuated nine people from homes as a precaution because of a large natural gas line that ruptured nearby.

    Fire department spokesman Mark Brady said Monday the gas line was broken near 22nd Avenue and Amherst Road.

    Brady said a commander on the scene warned the evacuation could last several hours.
