EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Officials with Texas Gas says a third-party damaged a gas line on Viscount, which led to an evacuation of businesses on Wednesday.
“We are in the process of making repairs,” a spokesman said. “Our crews will be working into the evening hours.”
An El Paso Fire Department spokesman said the gas leak was found outside on the street and near landscaping, not inside of a building. Emergency crews were called to the 9100 block of Viscount this afternoon to address the issue.
“Texas Gas is on the scene right now with a dig crew to repair the line,” the spokesman said. “Shaver Driver and Viscount are being blocked off as a safety measure.”
No injuries have been reported.
