MAYFLOWER, Ark. (AP) — People are starting to move back into an Arkansas subdivision evacuated last year after a 2013 pipeline accident.

The Log Cabin Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/1AGDz2s ) that about 22 of 63 homes in the Northwoods subdivision of Mayflower were evacuated after ExxonMobil’s Pegasus pipeline ruptured last year, spilling about 210,000 gallons of oil in the neighborhood 30 miles northwest of Little Rock.

A handful of residents have returned while others have decided to participate in a program that allows them to sell their homes to ExxonMobil at market price. ExxonMobil says four homes have been sold and five others are for sale. The company is working on placing more homes on the market.
