SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — San Francisco police issued a shelter in place in the 3100 block of Pacific Avenue, near Lyon Street, because of a “natural gas issue,” according to emergency officials.

A fire dispatcher said emergency crews were responding to the area but no further information was immediately available.

A PG&E spokeswoman said that utility crews were also responding to the area and that an outage was reported in the same area at 10:06 p.m.

The outage was affecting 332 customers in the area as of 11 p.m. and a time of restoration was not immediately available.

    This story is in error. There was no shelter in place ordered. It was sent out on the wires but immediately refuted by PG&E. There was a power outage but NO GAS LEAK, and NO SHELTER IN PLACE!
