Teaneck NJ, Teaneck residents faced a gas leak emergency on Sunday night, leading to evacuations in the cold before service was restored, as confirmed by the police.

The incident unfolded around 6:18 p.m. when a Larch Avenue resident reported a strong gas odor near their home. PSE&G promptly responded, and the Teaneck Police Department, Fire Department, and Volunteer Ambulance Corps swiftly organized the evacuation of all residents within a 330-foot radius.

Police Chief Andrew McGurr explained that high gas readings inside and outside eight houses mandated evacuations, resulting from a leak under the roadway. PSE&G located and repaired the leak while precautionary measures were taken.

Residents were safely guided to a staging area, where shelter arrangements were made. Bergen County Office of Emergency Management provided buses to temporarily house displaced residents, and the Richard Rodda Community Center was also available for those needing further assistance.

Fortunately, no injuries or illnesses were reported during the incident. The source of the leak was identified as a service line to 662 Larch Ave.

By 10 p.m., PSE&G officials declared the gas leak under control, allowing residents to return to their homes.
