Gas main leak that led to fire, evacuations in Oakland, California, is capped
OAKLAND, Calif. - Officials say a gas main leak that led to an underground fire in Oakland and forced the evacuation of several homes has been capped. No injuries were reported.
Fire officials told the Oakland Tribune (http://bit.ly/J38926) the line was capped Tuesday, about three hours after the leak was reported.
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. spokesman Jason King told KRON4-TV the utility responded to the scene and found a 4-inch plastic gas main had ruptured.
At one point television news footage showed flames coming from below the roadway. The fire was near homes located several blocks from Interstate 580.
