PASADENA, Texas – A shelter-in-place order that was issued Monday for part of Pasadena has been lifted.

In a Facebook post, city officials said the order is for a 100-yard radius of the intersection of Burke and Crenshaw roads.

Officials said people should stay indoors, close all doors and windows and turn off heating or cooling systems.

Pasadena police said in a Facebook post that Teague Elementary school and Tegeler Career Center were placed on lockdown because of the incident.

Vance Mitchell, a police spokesman, said roads were reopened about 11:25 a.m. and the shelter order was lifted.

Mitchell said the incident stemmed from a construction crew that hit a gas line while they were working.
