A handful of homes have been evacuated tonight in East Norriton, Montgomery County due to a gas leak.

PECO determined the fault is with a 2-inch plastic line, along the 100 block of Hartranft Boulevard.

7 homes have been provided with portable heaters since service will not be restored until morning.
