Gas leak that prompted evacuations in San Francisco has been capped

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A gas leak forced neighbors to evacuate Monday morning at Van Ness Avenue and Filbert Street in San Francisco.

PG&E says the gas leak has been capped. But before that, the San Francisco Fire Department was going door-to-door in a four-block area and ordering people who live on the first floor of their homes and apartments to leave.

People on the second floor were being told to shelter-in-place.
