Gas leak in Outer Parkside neighborhood capped

A gas leak caused by a third-party dig-in in San Francisco’s Outer Parkside neighborhood Monday morning has been capped, a PG&E spokeswoman said.

The leak was reported to PG&E at 8:10 a.m. San Francisco fire officials said the leak was at a construction site at 2539 37th Ave. between Ulloa and Vicente streets.

A construction crew hit a three-quarter-inch line, PG&E spokeswoman Tamar Sarkissian said. Utility crews arrived on scene 10 minutes later and capped the leak by 9:10 a.m.

No injuries were reported as a result of the leak.

Sarkissian encouraged anyone doing a project involving digging to call 811 first to have gas lines marked by PG&E.
