ROCKDALE, Texas (KXAN) — Smoke and flames towered into the sky in Rockdale Friday morning prompting concerns the propane business next door would catch fire.

Firefighters were called to a house fire next to All Service Propane on Cameron Road (US Highway 79) around 9 a.m. Friday morning and quickly began evacuating neighboring homes and businesses.

By late Friday morning  the fire was under control and there was no danger of it spreading to the propane business.

Traffic was being detoured off of Highway 79 by Rockdale police. Officers say the east end of Rockdale was blocked off between Yoakum and Highway 77. People are asked to avoid the area.
