UPDATED: A gas leak shut down a street in Napa Wednesday afternoon, Napa County emergency officials said.
Lincoln Avenue was closed between Marin Street and California Boulevard, and residents of the 1700 block of Lincoln Avenue were told to shelter in place.
PG&E responded to the gas leak and stopped the flow of gas in the area at 6:55 p.m., PG&E spokesman J.D. Guidi said.
PG&E spokeswoman Brittany McKannay said a third-party construction crew doing some digging in the area ruptured a gas distribution line.
Roughly 40 PG&E customers are without gas and electric service, she said.
Guidi said that they will remain without service until some time Thursday.
