Austin firefighters and the Hazmat task force worked to repair a ruptured gas line in east Austin Saturday afternoon, said the Austin Fire Department.
It happened at 1:52 p.m. in the 6600 block of Ed Bluestein Boulevard near Loyola Lane.
Texas Gas Service said that a contractor’s crew struck and damaged a pipe while digging there, and they are working to shut off the gas right now.
They said the incident closed Loyola from Millrace Drive to Ed Bluestein Boulevard. Loyola Lane was back open before 9 p.m., police said.
There have been no evacuations so far, according to a tweet from the Austin Fire Department.
