23 homes in rural Burt County were evacuated Monday night following an anhydrous ammonia leak near Tekamah.  Residents could be out of their homes for several days as officials work to make repairs to the Magellan Midstream Partners pipeline and air quality is monitored.

Highway 75 also remains closed today until health officials determine the air quality is safe.

The dead man has been identified as 59-year old Phillip Hennig.

It could take the company several days to make repairs to the pipeline.
