A gas leak at Fifth Street and Highway 87 resulted in the Dalhart Fire Department requesting the area be avoided for approximately four hours on Saturday afternoon. 

Dalhart fire fighters were called to the scene to monitor until the leak was contained, asking motorists to avoid the area. 

“We had to wait on a crew out of Amarillo to come contain the leak. The fire department did gas monitoring and traffic control,” fire chief Curtis Brown said.
