An SDG&E employee works to repair a natural gas line on Voltaire Street in Point Loma.

SAN DIEGO – Authorities closed a busy street in Point Loma after a work crew hit a natural gas line while digging.

The gas leak happened Tuesday morning on Voltaire Street between Catalina Boulevard and San Clemente Street. Voltaire was closed for several blocks as city crews waited for SDG&E technicians to shut off the gas and repair the line.

The street reopened to traffic shortly before 2 p.m.
