The electric car maker Tesla is setting up a "gallery" at the Domain shopping center this weekend. It’ll have its new electric cars on display. And while they can’t sell them in Texas without a dealership, the company can show the vehicles and take orders on the Internet.

Reports spread quickly this afternoon that construction damage to a natural gas pipe at The Domain had caused a gas leak.

Reports from news outlets stated that building evacuations occurred near the site of the leak, the under-construction Westin Hotel on Domain Drive, inside the sprawling mixed-use development in North Austin.

Texas Gas Service spokesperson Lori Moreno tells KUT News it wasn’t the gas company that called for evacuations.
