CORPUS CHRISTI -Part of NAS-Corpus Christi had to be evacuated because of a propane gas leak.
Around 10 this morning, a sailor smelled gas and called the Fire Department.
Firefighters found a valve from a 10-thousand gallon tank had blown and was releasing liquid propane.
Because the tank is not part of the base, the city gas department was notified.
While crews were out there, a second valve to a separate tank started leaking.
Gas crews were able to fix both leaks quickly, no one was hurt.
