    A natural gas leak prompted evacuations at a Saratoga neighborhood Thursday.

    The incident was reported at 11:39 a.m. on Saratoga Sunnyvale Road, just south of Spring Blossom Court. Firefighters said an underground natural gas line was struck by a construction crew digging in the area.

    Several residences in the area were evacuated while crews worked to cap the leak. PG&E said the leak was capped shortly after 4 p.m.
