A gas leak on the west side forced an evacuation overnight. It happened in a neighborhood off Farther Point and Westminister. Firefighters say a construction crew hit a natural gas line. The gas didn't catch fire but firefighters did evacuate a few nearby homes as a precaution.

Crews with CenterPoint Energy were then called out to seal the leak and residents were eventually allowed back into their homes.
