The equipment was damaged by recent lightning. The repairs, expected to begin at 7pm, will involve a flare of up to 30 feet in the Brigeland community. The Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department cautions this will emit large amount of noise and flame. It may be accompanied by a strange smell, but this is not a gas leak.
There will be a visible flame that those traveling in the immediate vicinity may see. #hounews— CenterPoint Energy (@CNPalerts) January 3, 2017
