Gas leak causes evacuations at Philadelphia apartment complex, officials say

Authorities say a gas leak caused an entire Philadelphia apartment building to evacuate on Wednesday night. 

Emergency crews were called to the Mendela Apartments on the 7000 block of North Broad Street around 7:30 p.m. 

Officials told FOX 29's Shawnette Wilson that there were high carbon monoxide readings inside the building. 

More than two dozen adults and seven children were displaced for the night, but the fire department says everyone found temporary shelter.

The Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management, License and Inspections, PECO and PGW are among the agencies investigating the leak.

They are still unsure as to what caused the high carbon monoxide readings.

Authorities did not report any hospitalizations immediately following the incident.
