UPDATE: Gas leak that triggered evacuations in Inner Sunset resolved

Residents in San Francisco’s Inner Sunset neighborhood were briefly evacuated Friday morning following a report of a gas leak, according to fire officials.

The 600 block of Irving Street was evacuated and a shelter in place order issued for a one-block area around 621 Irving St. after a gas leak was reported near that address around 9:30 a.m.

Fire, police and PG&E responded to the area and went door-to-door to notify residents.

The shelter in place order and evacuations were lifted shortly before 10:30 a.m. and the street has reopened to traffic.

Fire Department spokesman Lt. Jonathan Baxter said the incident was caused by a nonresidential construction project that ruptured a 1-inch gas line in the area.
