FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A one-inch residential gas line ruptured in Fort Worth, causing gas to get into the sanitary sewer system and start bubbling up into the toilets and sinks in surrounding homes, the fire department said.
The Fort Worth Fire Department said the main focus is on Los Padres Court, but two other cul-de-sacs have been evacuated as well: 7400 Catlow Court and 7400 San Isabel Court.
About 125 people in 50 homes were evacuated.
The gas line was struck by a cable crew digging in the area.
After the gas was shut off, the gas began to dissipate quickly.
No injuries were reported.
Around 7:40 p.m. the leak was over and people were able to return to their homes but with no gas service for the time being.
