Utility crews have capped a gas leak that shut down a residential street in Hillsborough this morning.
The leak occurred when a gardener dug into a half-inch gas line at a home on Braemar Drive, causing it to rupture, PG&E spokesman Jason King said.
PG&E was on scene by 10:10 a.m. and had the leak capped by 10:30 a.m., King said.
No one was injured and no evacuations were necessary, he said.
Street traffic was restricted for about 45 minutes.
Gas service to the home where the work was being performed was interrupted, but no other customers were affected, he said.
To avoid rupturing pipelines, workers should always call 811 to get specific information about the location of gas lines before digging, King said.
