Pacific Gas and Electric crews spent several hours sealing a leak in a gas line near Galt High School on Wednesday morning.
The Cosumnes Fire Department and PG&E responded around 8:40 a.m. to A and Lincoln streets after receiving several reports about the faint smell of gas, according to Cosumnes Fire Chief Tracey Hansen.
Crews on scene learned construction workers digging in the area punctured the plastic line. The fire department closed roads in the surrounding area. Hansen said the smell of gas reached a portion of the Galt High School campus.
As a result, classrooms nearest the gas leak were moved to the opposite end of campus, Hansen said.
PG&E crews spent several hours breaking asphalt in order to reach the line.
Around 3 p.m., more than six hours after the leak was reported, PG&E crews were able to seal the line, according to PG&E spokeswoman Brandi Ehlers.
