Update: Oak Park gas line repair completed

Crews have repaired a gas leak that prompted the evacuation of roughly 20 people from six buildings in Oak Park on Friday morning.

The gas leak was shut off just before 1 p.m., said Brandi Elhers, PG&E spokesperson. People were let back into the area around 1:30 p.m. after the Sacramento Fire Department checked businesses and residences in the area to make sure dangerous levels of gas had not accumulated, she said.

A construction crew apparently punctured a gas line near Broadway and 3rd Avenue at about 7:10 a.m., said Chris Costamagna, of the Sacramento Fire Department.
