WINDSOR, Colo. — A large gas line ruptured in Windsor Tuesday morning, causing damage to one home.

The Windsor Severance Fire Rescue, Poudre Fire Authority, Windsor Police Department and UCHealth responded to the fire, which broke out along the 5600 block of Shadow Creek Court in west Windsor.

Windsor and Severance Fire said the damaged house was under construction, so nobody was home.

An excavator hit the gas line, officials said.
