Crews cap gas leak that halted train in SFC area

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Workers have capped a gas leak in the San Francisco area that shut down commuter train service in two directions.

Construction crews working on a Caltrain-related project broke a gas main in suburban San Bruno around 9 p.m. Sunday.

KGO-TV reports the leak was stopped before dawn Monday.

There’s no word on when train service will resume.

Late Sunday, Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said she expected the line to resume regular operations Monday morning.

No injuries or evacuations were reported.

Passengers at two stations were taken by bus to Millbrae to board a southbound train, while northbound passengers were able to board a Bay Area Rapid Transit train.

The leak was about four miles away from where a gas main exploded in a residential area in 2010, killing 8 people.
