A gas leak left residents in South Philly out of their homes Tuesday.

Someone reported the smell of gas along the 2500 block of Mole Street around 10:30 a.m.

Philadelphia Gas Works responded to the scene and found gas readings but couldn’t confirm a leak, according PGW spokeswoman Melanie McCottry.

In total four homes were evacuated as a precaution, according to PGW.

Philadelphia Police, firefighters and PECO crews also responded to the scene.

This reported leak is about 1.2 miles from the scene of a gas explosion at another South Philly home last summer.

The cause of Tuesday's leak wasn't clear.
