Firefighters have given the OK to return to the building after deeming it safe

Residents of a Roxbury building that was evacuated due to a gas leak Friday morning have been allowed to return after fire crews determined the structure is safe.

The Boston Fire Department said authorities responded to a gas leak at 9:50 a.m. at a building on 1065 Tremont St. National Grid responded and shut down the leak safely, fire crews said.

The building was tested and authorities determined it was safe to go back inside.
