CORPUS CHRISTI - Some residents on the northwest side of town woke up to the loud sound of gas releasing from a pipe.
The Corpus Christi Fire Department arrived shortly after 8 a.m to the intersection of Violet Road and Mallard Drive responding to a gas leak, closing down part of Violet Road. It was later determined the pipe was functioning correctly.
"It's a safety valve, like a pressure valve, that when the pressure builds up it will release some of the pressure," says Jim DeVisser, CCFD Battalion Chief.
Within an hour men from Enterprise Products shut off the pipe that feeds natural gas to the city. The fire department says the leak did not put any residents in danger.
