Youngsville Residents Safe After Gas Line Ruptured
Youngsville residents reporting a loud blast got the all-clear late last night after a gas line ruptured. KATC first reported the incident at Texas Gas Transmission near the intersection of LA 92 and Verot School Road. Some residents said it sounded like a tornado. Crews responded and were able to safely shut off a gas valve. No injuries were reported though residents were asked to temporarily stay inside. The Lafayette Parish Sheriff's office said evacuation orders were not necessary.
