The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s East Los Angeles Station is conducting an evacuation of a residential area on South Gerhart Avenue, between West Pomona Boulevard and East Beverly Boulevard after a  gas line was punctured by a work crew in the 300 block of South Gerhart Avenue, East Los Angeles. Los Angeles County Fire is on scene and working with Sheriff’s Department personnel to rectify the problem.

Approximately 80-100 people affected by the leak totally around 50 to 60 homes.

 The Gas Company estimates the gas leak will be repaired within the next 3 hours (@1650 hrs).

 Evacuees are being transported to Garfield High School, 5101 E. Sixth Street, Los Angeles, via Metro Buses.
