SAN MATEO -- A gas leak in San Mateo was capped Friday afternoon, according to PG&E.
The 1.25-inch service line at 1990 Elkhorn Court was severed around 1 p.m. by a contractor working with a backhoe in the area, PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said.
San Mateo police and fire responded and ordered some evacuations in the area.
PG&E crews were on scene by 1:19 p.m. and had the line capped by 1:46 p.m., Molica said.
Utility work crews were making final repairs this afternoon and no customers have had their gas service disrupted by the work, Molica said.
No injuries have been reported.
