MILFORD, Texas (AP) - A rural North Texas town remains evacuated for a second day and night because while work continued to extinguish a gas pipeline fire.

Ellis County sheriff's deputies escorted some Milford residents briefly to their homes Friday to collect medication and check on pets. Sheriff's spokeswoman Jo Ann Livingston said the evacuation order remained in effect Friday night for the area within a 1½-mile radius from the pipeline puncture.

A drilling crew punctured the line Thursday, triggering an explosion and a large fire that could be seen for miles. No injuries were reported.

Chevron crews worked Friday to patch the liquefied petroleum gas pipeline near Milford, 40 miles south of Dallas.
