LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock firefighters are on scene of a gas leak at 1st Place and University Ave. 

Atmos Energy reports a contractor, unrelated to Atmos, was boring in the near the area when he struck a 3-inch steel main. 

Atmos will have to plug the line off in three places (all welds) and could take up to three hours. 

There were no evacuations and no loss of service to any accounts. 

Traffic will be diverted for then next few hours. Avoid the area if possible.
