GARLAND, Texas (CBS11) – A contractor crew doing work damaged a four-inch natural gas line in Garland causing approximately 175 homes to be without gas service and 29 homes being evacuated.

As of 5:15 p.m. customers were able to return home. 

By 9:00 p.m. Atmos Energy crews were finished making repairs and technicians went door-to-door to restore gas service.
