Peoria, Il. -- A water leak leads to a different problem at a Peoria apartment complex.

A water line broke at Briargate Apartments Tuesday night.

A crew began to fix the line, but then they accidentally broke a gas pipe.

Residents close to the break were then told to leave until the gas line was fixed.

That line is now repaired, and residents are back in their apartments.
