A Bloomington street was closed off Sunday night after a gas pipeline began to leak near Jones Road, which led to a small explosion.
Victoria County Fire Marshal Richard Castillo said no injuries were reported in connection with the incident, but that the extent of the damage done by the small explosion was still under investigation. He said the source was a fracking pipeline.
"We've got an active leak. We do not know where it is," said Joe Garrison, chief of the Bloomington Volunteer Fire Department, about 9:30 p.m. at the scene "We do have several homes that are near the leak."
It was not clear what kind of chemicals were leaking.
Garrison said that in addition to Bloomington VFD, Placedo VFD, Victoria Fire Department and the Victoria County Fire Marshal also responded to the scene.
Castillo also said the cause of the leak remained under investigation.
