Emergency response trucks and PG&E crews were scrambling Friday morning to repair a broken gas line near Deadora Way in the Alhambra Valley. Meanwhile, non-residential traffic was being rerouted.
According to PG&E spokesperson Tamar Sarkissian, PG&E crews were working on a large pipeline project in the valley when a backhoe accidentally severed a three-quarter inch pipe providing service to a home on the 5000 block of Alhambra Valley Road.
The street was closed to traffic and crews scrambled to stop the gas flow all morning. After the gas stops flowing, Sarkissian said crews will repair the line.
No one was injured in the incident, and only one home had service affected, she said.
