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.
