KYLE, Texas (KXAN) — People are allowed to return now to four buildings that previously evacuated because of a natural gas leak in a Kyle neighborhood.
The City of Kyle posted Thursday afternoon on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, that the evacuations are now lifted. Emergency crews also cleared the scene and reopened the intersection, the city noted.
Earlier in the day, city leaders reported the leak happened near the intersection of Wetzel and Mather. The city noted the evacuations were “out of an abundance of caution,” according to its initial social media post.
City leaders said crews from CenterPoint Energy are still working in the area, and it’s unclear how much longer they’ll be there.
