Crews cap gas leak near downtown Half Moon Bay
January 13, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

PG&E crews have capped a gas leak in Half Moon Bay that began when someone doing digging ruptured a 2-inch gas line, a utility spokesman said.

The break was reported at 1:13 p.m. in the 600 block of San Benito Street, near downtown, PG&E spokesman Jason King said.

King said the rupture was caused by a third party, and that two Pacific Gas and Electric customers are without gas service.

Repair crews responded and pinched off the pipe, stopping the flow of gas, at about 2:30 p.m., King said.

Final repairs are underway and are expected to be completed by about 4 p.m. Once that happens, PG&E personnel will assist the affected customers in relighting their pilot lights, he said.

The gas leak did not result in any evacuations, King said.

PG&E is reminding Bay Area residents to call 811 before doing any digging to learn the location of underground gas lines.
