Gas Main Erupts Causing Evacuations




    Some Kensington residents were evacuated following a gas main break Thursday afternoon.

    The gas main ruptured around 4:15 p.m. on the 2900-block of E. Street resulting in the evacuation of 17 residents in the area.

    PGW has turned off gas in the neighborhood and crews are digging to try and find the location of the rupture.

    SEPTA also responded to the break to assist with evacuated residents who were taken to a shelter at E St. and Indiana Ave.

    No one was injured in the rupture.
