UPDATE: noon; The highway is now open, according to Cheyenne Police.

Cheyenne Police say a gas line break has prompted the closure of a stretch of U.S. Highway 30 between E. Pershing and Whitney Road.

People should avoid the area until further notice.

That's according to a post on the Cheyenne Police Department Facebook page.

Details Still Somewhat Sketchy

We will report further details as they become available.

Meet the Four-Legged Heroes of the Cheyenne Police Department

They may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but make no bones about it, police dogs play a vital role in the fight against crime.

In many situations, they're the first ones to put their lives on the line to protect their human partners, proving that not all heroes wear capes, some wear fur coats.
