DeWitt County skies turned red Sunday night when a pipeline break resulted in a huge fire between Cuero and Westhoff.
Early reports indicate an Energy Transfer pipeline located near FM 953 and Lindenau Road erupted in fire shortly after sunset.
While several homes were evacuated near the area, there were no reports of any injuries near the break.
Fire departments from Westhoff to Cuero plus numerous first responders were on the scene to fight the fire and control traffic.
Oil production companies with wells in the area responded by shutting down their production to reduce pressure at the pipeline.
A fire command center was established near Lindenau Hall to control the emergency.
