TUCSON - Three homes have been evacuated due to a gas line break on the east side.
It happened at approximately 11:15 a.m. on Sarnoff Drive and Bowline Road, which is located near 22nd Street and Sarnoff Drive, according to Tucson Fire Department spokesman Capt. Barrett Baker.
A construction company working in the area called 911 and reported that they had broken a 2-inch gas line, Baker said. Tucson Fire dispatched a Hazmat crew due to the size of the leak, Baker added.
Southwest Gas crews are currently working to stop the leak.
Motorists are urged to avoid the area.
