AUSTIN (KXAN) — Fire crews and the Texas Gas Service have stopped the flow of gas in an east Austin neighborhood after a large gas line was hit.
Contractors hit the line near 905 Bedford St. near the Booker T. Washington apartments, the fire department tweeted at 7:50 a.m.
No one was evacuated and the gas was shut off.
This is just one of a number of gas line breaks in the past week. There was one Oct. 3 that led to evacuations and road closures near MoPac and 45th Street. On Oct. 4, eight residents had to evacuate after a 6-inch line was hit in southeast Austin.
