Evacuees Are Back Home After Gas Well Blowout

About 75 residents, evacuated after a gas well blowout, are now back home. They were forced out of their homes Monday.

The single gas well head is off Farm to Market Roads 349 and 2276. That's, northeast of Kilgore. Workers capped the gas well late Tuesday afternoon.

The process was not complete until Wednesday morning. The fear of an explosion began when water was spewing from the well. No word yet on what caused the blowout.
