San Francisco propane tank leak prompts evacuations

Evacuations were ordered from a block in San Francisco's Bayview neighborhood where firefighters said there was a "large propane tank leak" on March 18, 2022.

Authorities went door to door to evacuate people from a block of San Francisco's Bayview neighborhood because of a "large propane tank leak."

The 1200 block of Van Dyke Avenue was to be avoided, the San Francisco Fire Department tweeted.

There were two 1,000-gallon propane tanks that were affected by what a Fire Department spokesman later said was a "small" leak.

Approximately 90 minutes after the evacuation order was issued, authorities said the leak had been capped.

No injuries were reported.

No other information was immediately available about the incident.
