Responders with CenterPoint Energy are currently working to plug a gas leak caused by contractors laying orange pipe at Timberlane and Wildcat drives, according to officials with the El Dorado Police and El Dorado Fire departments.
They emphasize there is no danger to students at the nearby El Dorado High School or to vehicles passing by, however, currently the only access to the school is by Parnell Road. Wildcat Drive is closed although Timberlane traffic continues to move smoothly, according to a photographer at the scene.
The El Dorado Fire Department is on hand to monitor air quality.
