    An elementary and middle school in Mansfield were placed on red alert Friday morning after a gas leak at a nearby well site..

    Brockett Elementary and Coble Middle School were put on alert, the district says, after a leak was detected at a well near the 1700-block of Debbie Lane.

    The source of the leak turned out to be a mixture of gas and steam being released from a nearby well site.

    Thad Penkala with the Mansfield Police Department said they are happy to see that all of the safety measures in place near the well worked as designed.

    The fire department determined the gas dissipated enough to not pose a threat to the schools or nearby Arlington neighborhood and the scene was cleared.
