UPDATE: PG&E crews capped a gas leak in San Jose Monday evening after construction workers digging in a commercial development struck a gas line, a utility spokeswoman said.

Spokeswoman Mayra Tostado said there were no evacuations or injuries reported in Monday’s incident.

It wasn’t clear Monday evening whether or not the gas line was marked, according to Tostado, but PG&E always encourages property owners to call 811 before digging to avoid similar incidents.

“We want to remind customers to call 811 to have underground lines marked (before digging),” Tostado said in a statement. “It’s a free and fast service that can save money, time and lives.”
