Several homes were evacuated due to a gas leak Monday morning in northwest Oklahoma City.

According to the Fire Department, just before 9 a.m., a 2” medium pressure gas line ruptured in a backyard in the 6800 block of N.W. 131st Street.

A contractor installing a new pool in a back yard struck the line.  Fire officials said three homes were evacuated, and they knocked on doors of nearly a dozen to alert them and check their homes. 

An Oklahoma Natural Gas crew has the gas shut off now.
