Construction company strikes gas line at school, no students present


A construction company struck a gas line at Laurel Dell Elementary School in San Rafael on Monday morning, causing a leak that was quickly shut off, a PG&E spokeswoman said.

The leak in the 1-inch plastic service line was reported at 11:20 a.m. and the flow of gas was stopped at 11:45 a.m., PG&E spokeswoman Deanna Contreras said.

The school at 225 Woodland Ave. already was closed for construction work and its students are at a middle school, a school spokeswoman said.

San Rafael police said traffic on Woodland Avenue between Seibel and Eva streets might be affected by the gas leak. Police issued a shelter in place order and said there is no immediate danger to residents.
