NEWS 8 INVESTIGATES

MESQUITE News 8 continues to investigate natural gas leaks, and on Wednesday afternoon there was another scare for Mesquite residents.

Firefighters evacuated about 20 homes near LBJ Freeway and U.S. 80 for several hours.

Atmos Energy found a leak on a service line in an alley and workers were making repairs.

Wednesday's leak follows a house explosion in November and multiple leaks in another Mesquite neighborhood just a few miles away.
