Authorities say four homes were evacuated in the Tacony section of Philadelphia on Wednesday morning for a gas leak.

PGW said a commercial technician was out in the 7200 block of Torresdale Avenue when he smelled the odor of gas.

He then noticed a curb box was damaged and leaking, so he contacted PGW, which summoned police and firefighters.

Police shut down the street and evacuated homes while PGW repairs the curb box.

PGW said there has been no loss of gas and no damage.
