Headline Goes Here

SPRING - An evacuation order was lifted in northwest Harris County Wednesday afternoon, but crews are continuing to repair a gas leak in the area.

A four-to six-inch gas main was cut in the 5200 block of Spring Cypress at Settlers Ridge around 11:30 a.m.

People in close proximity were evacuated for safety, but that order has since been lifted.

The gas was turned off around 1:10 p.m. and crews expect the repairs to be complete by 5 p.m.

HazMat and the Spring Fire Department worked the scene.
