MARTINEZ -- Approximately 200 PG&E customers were left without gas service Wednesday as crews worked to repair a leak caused when a construction crew ruptured a gas line, a spokeswoman said.
Crews sealed the leak by noon, about 2 1/2 hours after the rupture occurred at 9:41 a.m., PG&E spokeswoman Tamar Sarkissian said. The 2-inch line hit was located at Blum Road and Imhoff Drive by a construction crew not tied to PG&E.
No homes were evacuated, but PG&E crews had to turn off gas to homes in the area to make repairs, Sarkissian said. Once the repairs are complete, PG&E workers will be going door-to-door to turn on the gas again in the affected homes, she said.
There were no reports of anyone being affected physically by the leak, and Martinez police said no streets in the area were shut down and no homes were evacuated.
