SHERMAN, Tex. -- Firefighters responded to a gas leak call in a Sherman neighborhood Tuesday afternoon in the 100 block of Travis Court.

Sherman Fire Chief Jeff Jones says a homeowner was digging in the yard when he struck a feeder line.

Jones says the line did break, and there was a scent of gas in the air but it was not a major leak, and no one was evacuated.

Oncor monitored the site until the gas could be shut off. The leak was repaired.

    So do you have to have lines marked before you can dig a hole for your rose bushes ??

    Will the owner get fined? I know from experience that you have to get the cable company, the telephone company, the electric company, and the gas company to mark the lines BEFORE you dig. So you can't just go digging in your own yard without approval.
