UPDATE: 11:36 a.m. Friday, Feb. 26 - PG&E has fixed a severed gas line that came from a one-inch plastic line connected to a home on the 6600 block of Lincoln Blvd, North of Palmero Rd, in Oroville, according to PG&E. 

The gas leak was stopped at 11 a.m. and resulted in a home's evacuation and the neighbors on each side of the home. The residents were allowed to return to their homes, and PG&E crews are preparing to leave the scene.

According to PG&E, a contractor was using a mini-excavator to dig a trench in the front yard when they severed a gas line. 

PG&E is working to determine if the contractors called 811 two business days before working, per safety guidelines for digging, to see if the gas line was properly marked before they were cut.
