Evanston fire crews are on the scene of a gas leak at the intersection of South Boulevard and Elmwood Avenue this afternoon.

Reportedly a construction crew digging in the street around 3 p.m. hit a gas main close to the location where another gas main break had occurred just a few days ago.

Officials are asking people to avoid the area and have called Nicor crews to the scene to repair the leak.
