UPDATE: Crews battle gas leak at McKinley and Bittersweet


Crews worked Tuesday afternoon to fix a gas leak at McKinley and Bittersweet, north of Penn High School.

Crews were dispatched after a report of a smell of natural gas in the area. Dispatchers say the problem was with a 3 inch line.

Dispatchers tell us a Marathon gas station at the intersection was evacuated as a result of the leak.

Several PHM schools are just south of the area. A PHM spokeswoman tells FOX28 they were made aware of the leak, but did not need to evacuate any buildings. They avoided the intersection while dismissing students, which meant some students might have arrived home later than normal.
