A gas leak in the town of Lissie, right outside of Wharton, has officials concerned for the safety of some residents. A natural gas line ruptured within the Tennessee Gas complex and gas was visibly spewing out. Dirt was tossed around by the rupture, but there are no other apparent signs of damage.

Officials reportedly evacuated families from two homes near this line. No one has been hurt.
