Neighborhood Evacuated Following Gas Leak

Thursday, May 20, 2010 - 5:43pm

A South El Paso neighborhood was evacuated after a gas leak. Neighbors in three square blocks between Father Rahm and Delta were forced from their homes. Water utility crews were digging in the area when they hit the gas line. We're told there were markings on the street that clearly showed the location of the gas line.

"The big concern is making sure that this gas line does not ignite, so we want to make sure we eliminate all initial sources and wait for gas company crews to come and help mitigate the leak," said John Concha with El Paso Fire Department.

Gas crews arrived and sealed the leak.
