Gas leak prompts evacuation of 50 homes in Brick

Residents were allowed back home after a gas leak forced the evacuations of 50 residences in Brick late Saturday morning, officials said.

Crews made the area safe and shut down service to 40 customers after reports of a gas odor on Tennessee Avenue around 11:40 a.m., according to New Jersey Natural Gas spokesman Michael Kinney.

Service was expected to be restored by Saturday evening, the spokesman said. There were no reported injuries. It was not clear what caused the leak.

Police were not immediately available to provide more details on the evacuations.
