Klein, TX (3/5/2021) – Multiple people were injured on Friday after a natural gas explosion and subsequent fire occurred near Klein.

The incident happened on Gleannloch Lakes Boulevard. According to officials, a Comcast crew was working in the area when they nicked a natural gas line. The crew called in CenterPoint to inspect when the two lines exploded.

The report said that “a representative of Comcast said a contractor cut a small line in an area where the line was incorrectly marked. The representative said CenterPoint crews hit a larger line while repairing the small line.”

Five people were taken by ambulance to the hospital while residents evacuated the area. One person was airlifted to Memorial Hermann in critical condition. 

Several vehicles were burning and one home sustained damage. 

At around midnight, authorities reported the fire had been put out and residents were being allowed back into their homes.
