SAN RAFAEL (KRON) — Four homes were evacuated in the area of a gas line break in San Rafael Monday morning, according to fire officials.
Around 10:00 a.m. a construction crew accidentally struck and ruptured the line at 232 Clorinda Ave., according to PG&E officials.
Four homes in the immediate area of the gas line break were evacuated as a safety measure.
A shelter in place was also issued for the area surrounding Clorinda Ave. and Los Robles due to the fact that gas is still leaking from the line.
Crews are on scene working to squeeze the gas line to stop the flow of gas.
Depending on where crews pinch the line, 80-100 PG&E customers in the area will not have access to gas until later in the day.
There is no exact estimation for when gas will be restored to the affected customers.
