• 2 east-side homes evacuated after gas-line break


    Two homes on Tucson's east side were evacuated this morning because of a broken gas line.

    According to a news release from the Tucson Fire Department, the neighborhood near South Sarnoff Drive and East Bowline Road was closed off while crews from SW Gas secured the broken line.

    The release said the gas line south of East 22nd Street between South Pantano Parkway and South Camino Seco was struck, but did not give any more detail about the incident.

    Early reports incorrectly said the evacuation affected three residences.

    Tucson News Now will update this story as details become available.
