ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Dozens of people were evacuated from a cluster of row homes after a natural gas leak in Allentown Sunday night.

Officials said the leak was detected in a row home in the 900 block of North 7th Street, near the Whitehall border, just after 8 p.m. Sunday.

That home and several others were evacuated, forcing about 35 adults and 5 to 10 children out of their homes for hours.

UGI isolated the leak and residents were allowed back inside early Monday morning, said the Allentown fire department.

The leak, which was believed to be coming from a main in the street, was repaired, UGI said.
