Crew Strikes Gas Line in Menlo Park

A PG&E spokesperson said no one was hurt.

A third-party contractor working in the backyard of a Menlo Park home struck a gas line Friday, according to a PG&E spokesman.

The contractor hit a half-inch plastic service pipe that provides gas to a home in the 400 block of Laurel Avenue at about 9 a.m., PG&E spokesman Jason King said. As of 9:25 a.m., crews were at the scene and working to stop the flow of gas, King said.

The line was expected to be shut off around 9:50 a.m., he said. The leak was only affecting the single home and no injuries were reported. King said the area has been secured and is safe.
