Gas Line Explosion Causes Tucker Residents to Evacuate
A gas line ruptured in the Tucker area Sunday afternoon, causing residents to evacuate.
A 12-inch gas line erupted around 4:30 p.m. near Anderson County Roads 2130 and 2133.
According to Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor, the gas line was admitting a white cloud and making a loud noise.
Anderson County Sheriff deputies, Tucker Volunteer Fire Department, Elkhart Fire Department, the Constable and Texas Department of Transportation officers assisted in containing and evacuating the area. Only a few homes were evacuated, and they were allowed to return to their homes later that evening after Atmos Energy shut the line off.
