1,200 Roseville Residents had to go without gas, after PG&E repairs on a gas line break caused wider-spread outages.

A PG&E representative says the leak that had the intersection of Cirby and Riverside Avenue closed down for much of Tuesday was caused by a cracked pipe. But as crews worked to fix that problem, parts of their system became depressurized.

In order to get it working again, crews had to close gas valves at 1,200 homes for several hours.

"Now I can take a hot shower and get my dishes washed!" said Robert Shear as he was getting his gas service restored. "It didn't really affect us that much. It was just the not knowing."

Once the line was re-pressurized, PG&E sent 100 technicians to go door-to-door, turning the gas valves back on and reigniting pilot lights.

"It should not happen, so that's one of those things we're going to take a close look at," said PG&E spokesman Brian Swanson. "We're still looking into what happened, but it could be more a procedural area."
