PROSPER (1080 KRLD) - Some Atmos gas customers in Prosper are still without service this morning, even though a late night gas line rupture has been repaired. 

Late Monday night, the town of Prosper put out a notice saying Atmos was working on a gas line leak caused by an excavation crew.

While it took only about an hour longer to fix the problem the service interruption might last a while because Atmos had to shut down the gas to about 80 homes.

Each of those homes will have to be restored one at a time and someone will have to be home for crews to do that. If they find nobody home, they'll leave a door hanger with a number to call to have someone come out at a convenient time.
