A gas line was broken by a crew digging in Danville on Thursday morning but it was quickly repaired by PG&E crews, according to the utility company.
The San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District reported that a gas line was broken at 1100 Camino Tassajara at 10:10 a.m. Thursday.
PG&E spokeswoman Tamar Sarkissian said the utility's crews responded at 10:20 a.m., stopped the flow of gas at 10:33 a.m. and had repairs on the half-inch service line completed by 10:50 a.m.
The line's rupture was caused by a third-party digging project and could have been prevented had 8-1-1 been called to pinpoint nearby underground gas lines, Sarkissian said.
She said residents should use the 8-1-1 resource before a digging project of any size is conducted.
