MCKINNEY -- Firefighters were called to El Dorado and Stone Bridge Parkways near Methodist McKinney after a construction crew hit a six-inch gas line Monday.
Their equipment is sitting over the leak, which created a hazard, said Stacie Durham, McKinney Fire Department spokeswoman. Fire officials are evaluating whether to evacuate the Baybrook Nursing Home just west of the hospital.
Atmos is shutting off the gas at the site, which will include an excavation at Stonebridge and El Dorado, which may take several hours.
