PG & E caps gas leak in outer Sunset

Monday, January 14, 2013

A small gas leak that occurred in San Francisco's Outer Sunset neighborhood this morning was capped shortly before noon, a PG&E spokesman said.

The leak was reported at 10:48 a.m. on a small residential line near 43rd Avenue and Irving Street, PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said.

A construction crew working in the area apparently sawed through the line, prompting the evacuation of a couple of nearby buildings, Molica said.

PG&E crews responded and capped the leak by 11:44 a.m., he said.

Crews remained on site this afternoon working to make final repairs to the line and to restore service to the home, Molica said.
