LEON VALLEY, Texas – Several homes were evacuated and Raymond Rimkus Park was closed as a precaution following a natural gas leak Tuesday in Leon Valley.

A CPS Energy leak crew stopped the leak and is repairing the 2-inch line that was hit, CPS officials said in a tweet.

About 15 homes were without gas service, CPS officials said.

The incident was reported at the intersection of Evers and Poss roads.

Evacuated residents were allowed back to their homes a couple of hours later.

Officials said a 4-inch gas line was also hit at the intersection of Westover Way and Westernhill. A leak crew is on the scene.
