SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — PG&E crews have capped a gas leak in San Francisco Thursday night and are working to fix the damaged distribution line, a utility spokeswoman said.

PG&E crews ruptured the 16-inch steel distribution line while excavating a hole in the South of Market neighborhood around 7:15 p.m., spokeswoman Jana Morris.

Four customers were impacted by the leak and traffic was closed on Beale Street between Market and Howard streets and crews worked to cap the leak.

The leak was capped at around 8:40 p.m. and PG&E officials expect repairs to be completed by 10 p.m.
