A gas leak forced the evacuation of two dozen Oak Cliff homes near the intersection of Denley Drive and Strickland Street south of downtown Dallas on Monday.

Crews with Atmos repaired the 4-inch main that was breached by construction workers working with a backhoe.

Officials said the gas was at too low of a pressure to be a serious concern, but that hazmat crews remained at the location until the leak was sealed.

In all, 30 people were evacuated from 25 homes as a precautionary measure. Two were evacuated by officals because they are invalids.

The neighborhood intersection is not far from the intersection of Corinth Street and Morrell Avenue.

No injuries were reported.
