Menlo Park: Gas leak near Civic Center capped

 

Police have lifted the shelter-in-place advisory issued early this morning for some residents near the Menlo Park Civic Center after PG&E crews capped a gas leak reportedly caused by a fallen tree.

Around 4 a.m., police responded to a report of a gas leak in the 500 block of Laurel Street, according to a police dispatcher.

A downed tree, which also blocked traffic, caused the leak, police said.

PG&E as well as the Menlo Park Fire Department responded to the scene.

Police issued a bulletin asking people who live in the 500 block of Laurel Street and the 500 block of Hopkins Street to shelter in place, and asked area residents to avoid Laurel Street between Ravenswood Avenue and Burgess Drive.
