Gas line catches fire in Lake Highlands

Posted: Updated:

A gas line caught fire in the Lake Highlands area of Dallas on Wednesday.

It happened around noon in the 10,000 block of Mapleridge Drive.

Video from SKY 4 showed charred debris in what appeared to be the backyard of a one-story brick home.

Some neighbors said they heard an explosion. Others said they saw flames from a small fire spread to a gas meter in the alley, which then began spewing more flames.

Fire investigators said at this point it is still unclear what caused the fire and if the gas line was the source or just exposed.

No one was hurt.

Atmos Energy was called to address the gas leak.
