SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A massive tree toppled on top of a San Francisco public housing complex Tuesday, triggering a gas leak and forcing some evacuations, authorities said.

San Francisco fire spokesman Jonathan Baxter said the incident occurred at about 8:45 a.m. at a public housing complex at 250 Blythdale Ave.

In addition to the downed tree, a gas leak has also been discovered. PG&E crews responded to the scene and residents were forced to evacuate.

The location was in the same housing complex where another tree fell onto apartments Sunday, displacing two families and a total of seven people, according to Baxter.

That incident occurred around 7:30 a.m. at 166 Brookdale Ave. No injuries were reported.
