Evacuations have been lifted and the flow of gas stopped near San Francisco’s Alamo Square after a gas leak was reported in the area, according to fire officials.
PG&E was contacted just after 11 a.m. after a contractor struck a 2-inch gas distribution main at 929 Hayes St., according to utility spokesman J.D. Guidi.
Fire officials announced evacuations in the 900 block of Hayes Street around 11:30 a.m. on Twitter and lifted them around 12:30 p.m.
Police and firefighters went door-to-door to alert residents while PG&E worked to control the leak, officials said.
Guidi said PG&E crews arrived on the scene by 11:19 a.m. and were initially unable to stop the flow of gas, but capped the line around 1:25 p.m.
No injuries were reported, but Muni service and traffic in the area were affected.
PG&E urges all contractors and residents planning a dig to call 811 to check for utility lines in the area.
