SAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) - A 2-inch plastic gas pipe has ruptured in the same San Francisco suburb where a pipeline explosion killed eight people in 2010.
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. spokesman David Eisenhauer says the line burst Thursday morning when someone dug into the pipe in the Crestmoor neighborhood of San Bruno, near the site of the previous blast.
Eisenhauer says PG&E crews are responding and hope to have the gas flow stopped by early afternoon.
A San Bruno fire dispatcher said there have been no evacuations.
The explosion of a high-pressure transmission line on Sept. 9, 2010, sparked a gas-fueled fire that destroyed 38 homes and laid waste to parts of the same neighborhood.
