Turlock firefighters have responded to the 900 block of North Palm Street for a report of a gas leak.
The call was received around 12:25 p.m.
Engine 31 and Squad 32 are at the scene and firefighters have blocked off North Palm Street, between Canal Drive and Starr Avenue.
A backhoe is believed to have hit the gas line, causing the leak.
