BURNET — City officials are asking people and drivers to stay clear of the Fort Croghan area after a technician inadvertently cut a pressurized side of a valve causing a large natural gas leak a little after 9 a.m. July 21.

According to the Burnet Police Department, Atmos Energy dispatched a crew to repair the problem, but police are asking drivers to avoid the area of the museum, 703 W. Buchanan (Texas 29) if possible.
