TUCSON, Ariz. -- A propane leak Tuesday afternoon on the northwest side prompted a Hazmat call.

Northwest Fire crews found a 500 gallon tank at Tucson Asphalt leaking gas from the pressure relief valve.

Firefighters transferred the remaining 300 gallons of propane to a second tank.

No evacuations were necessary, but Curtis Road near La Cholla had to be closed during the process.
