A gas meter on Western Avenue made a popping sound, according to one neighbor, before the leak was discovered.
Initially, eight homes were evacuated and nearly 980 customers were left without heat Saturday morning.
Peoples Natural Gas told KDKA News Sunday afternoon that all but about 100 families had their service restored. The gas company was unable to access those 100 homes.
