Emergency officials have shut down a stretch of F.M. 539 from C.R. 304 to Sutherland Springs following a gas pipeline explosion near Texana Feeders.
Wilson County Pct. 1 Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr. said at the scene that Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office Coordinator Edwin Baker ordered the 7 to 8-mile-long closure after Texana workers heard two explosions just after 12:30 p.m. Chief Deputy Johnie Deagen of the Wilson County Sheriff's Office warned anyone who detects a natural gas odor to evacuate the area.
The Wilson County News will update this story as additional details become available.
