Construction crews damaged a natural gas line in San Bruno Tuesday afternoon, causing the evacuation of about a half-dozen homes, the city's  fire chief said.

The rupture occurred just before 2 p.m., when construction workers digging on Chestnut Avenue near Jenevein Avenue struck a 2-inch gas transmission line, PG&E spokesman Andrew Souvall said.

 San Bruno Fire Chief Dennis Haag said houses in the immediate area  were evacuated for about 45 minutes as a precaution.

Most residents were not at home, Haag said.

PG&E said crews capped the line before 4 p.m.

 Seven customers are without gas service as repairs were under way,  Souvall said.
