MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Public Market downtown has been evacuated after road construction crews reported hearing an underground explosion.
Police at the scene say there was likely no explosion, but a small fire apparently is burning deep underground. Road crews working on a reconstruction of nearby Interstate 794 have been pounding pilings into the road. It wasn't yet clear whether workers hit a gas line.
Milwaukee police have the area in the city's Third Ward cordoned off.
