SAN MIGUEL COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)– Crews clearing mudslides that measured one to two feet thick on Highway 145 in San Miguel County, broke a gas line on Tuesday. That forced some residents and businesses to be evacuated.

Utility crews repaired the leak within an hour and traffic was once again allowed through.
