Davis firefighters attended to a gas leak Thursday when an underground natural gas line was punctured during construction.
Ryan Stiles, a Davis Fire Department division captain, said a service line to a residence was hit at 10:18 a.m. by a construction crew on the 1100 block of Ovejas Avenue. Stiles said a crew from PG&E was called out to repair the leak, and did so “very quickly.”
“Because it was just a service line, and because PG&E responded so quickly we did not have to shut down the block for repairs,” Stiles said.
Residents who are considering digging near utility lines are asked to call 811 first. For more information, visit www.call811.com.
