On Monday, the Baytown Fire Department received a call for the smell of gas in the area of Massey Tompkins Rd. at Crosby Cedar Bayou Rd. at approximately 4:16 p.m.  BFD crews arrived on location to find a contractor working in the area. The contractor’s equipment had struck a 4” high pressure gas line, causing a leak. 

Traffic was shut down in the area while crews worked to stop the leak. Hazmat 7 was dispatched to monitor gas levels. CenterPoint arrived on location and determined that the 4” natural gas line was being fed from two different lines.
