Crews cap San Jose gas leak
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Crews have capped a gas leak that started in downtown San Jose late Tuesday morning that prompted shelter-in-place advisories for nearby residents and businesses.
The fire department was dispatched to the intersection of The Alameda and Morrison Street at 11:14 a.m. about a leak in a 3- or 4-inch underground gas main, fire officials said.
San Jose police halted traffic on a six-block section of The Alameda and residents and businesses were advised to shelter in place after the leak was reported.
PG&E crews responded and were able to control the leak by about 1:25 p.m., allowing officials to lift the shelter-in-place advisory, fire officials said.
The gas main sits beneath The Alameda, fire officials said.
