Pacific Gas and Electric officials say a gas leak that forced the evacuations of several Chico homes was caused by one of their crews digging on 7th Avenue Monday morning.

The gas leak was reported around 10:30 a.m., when crews hit a fitting and caused the gas to spew out.

PG&E crews were able to shut the gas off within the hour, but repairs continued until midnight.

7th Avenue was reopened late Monday night.
