Four homes near Abrego Drive and Vuelta Entera in Green Valley were evacuated Wednesday  afternoon because of a natural gas leak, Green Valley Fire District reported.

Southwest Gas secured the leak, and firefighters cleared the scene at 2:48 p.m., according to GVFD. No injuries were reported, and all residents since returned to their homes.
