(West Bountiful-AP) -- Students at a West Bountiful elementary school are being evacuated because of a natural gas line rupture near the school.

The two inch gas line was ruptured as crews did landscaping work outside Meadowbrook Elementary School.

About 530 children were evacuated to nearby Bountiful Junior High School while Questar workers repaired the line.

Several students were treated at the scene for some breathing problems but fire officials say they'll be o-k. The students will be returning to the elementary school soon.

Fire officials say there's no danger to any of the children.
