Helicopters Circle Above 24th and Bryant Hoping Giant Fireball Consumes Area

Curious as to why there's a bunch of helicopters waking you up before noon?  There's a massive gas leak near Dynamo Donuts at 24th and Bryant that local TV crews are hoping turns into a fireball:

San Francisco firefighters have evacuated one city block in the city's Mission District after a “major” gas leak, fire officials said.

The gas leak was first reported at 24th and Bryant streets a little before 11 a.m., said Deputy Fire Chief Mark Gonzales. Firefighters have hose lines in place, and Pacific Gas and Electric crews are responding to the scene to turn off the gas, he said.

According to PG&E, crews area already on the scene turning off the gas, much to the dismay of the vultures above.

That’s one hell of a fart, Kevin.

Don’t forget the Bean-O BEFORE dinner next time….

Maybe we are trying to change it too much. It’s time to redraw and to interpret it again, because do we really know what is going on today?

I don’t think PG&E was responsible. I think it was the road crews that have been redoing all of the sidewalk ramps on 24th.

Other fact checks. It was a 1.5 blocks from Dynamo and it occurred a little before 10:30.

It was a pretty amazing noise and the weird invisible shimmer of it shooting up int o the air kinda looked like the predator cloak.

It’s now contained.

Good catch re: Dynamo–I read on Twitter early on that it was out-front, but that clearly wasn’t the case. Corrected.

“It was a pretty amazing noise and the weird invisible shimmer of it shooting up int o the air kinda looked like the predator cloak.”

this sounds terrifying
