HARRIS COUNTY, Texas –- Firefighters and crews with CenterPoint Energy responded to a gas leak on the westside late Tuesday.

Officials said a road construction crew hit a gas line on W. Fernhurst at Cobia around 7:30 p.m.

CenterPoint arrived and cut off the leak as firefighters sprayed water on the line to keep static from building up.

The intersection was closed off while repairs could be made, but a timeframe for the process was not given.

About 77 homes remain without gas service, officials said.
