Gas leak capped in San Francisco neighborhood

A gas leak has been capped in San Francisco's Visitacion Valley neighborhood after being caused by a PG&E crew doing work on a service line this morning, a utility spokesman said.

The crew was replacing a three-quarter-inch service line for an individual residence at Rutland Street and Arleta Avenue when a piece of equipment connecting the line to the gas main snapped at 9:09 a.m., according to PG&E spokesman Jason King.

The crew shut off gas to the residence immediately, stopping the leak, King said.

There were no evacuations and the situation is safe, King said.

PG&E workers were replacing the equipment and working to restore gas to the residence late this morning, King said.
