Emergency crews in College Station have extinguished a fire on Harvey Road that started early Monday.
Firefighters were called to what officials initially thought was a transformer fire at 1003 Harvey Road, near Munson Avenue, just before 8 a.m. Crews remained on scene just before 9:30 a.m.
According to fire department officials, a gas line, not a transformer, caught fire. A cause for the fire was unclear this morning, officials said.
A gas line in the area was leaking and evacuations of area residents were ordered, according to a tweet from the College Station Fire Department. The fire was near Guitar Center, not far from Post Oak Mall.
Fire crews set up a command center off Harvey Road, and traffic was shut down in both directions from Munson Avenue to Scarlett O'Hara Drive.
Three fire engines were on the scene at 8:10 a.m., according to emergency scanner traffic.
Some College Station Utilities customers in the area were without power, but crews were working on repairs, according to a tweet from the city of College Station.
The fire department tweeted that the roadway reopened at around 8:30 a.m.
