Lawnmower punctures gas line in Lone Star

By Bob Hallmark - bio | email

A morning gas leak forced an East Texas neighborhood to evacuate Sunday. Authorities in Lone Star say a homeowner ran over a buried gas line at Germany street and Houston street while mowing the lawn.

Homeowners in a 2 block radius were evacuated while the gas line was shut off and repaired. No one was injured and homeowners were allowed back in their homes after about 2 hours.
