SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Commuter train service has resumed after workers capped a gas leak in the San Francisco area.

Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn says service resumed at its regularly scheduled time Monday morning. There were no delays.

The service was shut down after construction crews working on a Caltrain-related project broke a gas main in suburban San Bruno around 9 p.m. Sunday.

KGO-TV reports the leak was stopped before dawn Monday.

No injuries or evacuations were reported.

Passengers at two stations were taken by bus to Millbrae to board a southbound train, while northbound passengers were able to board a Bay Area Rapid Transit train.

The leak was about 4 miles from where a gas main exploded in a residential area in 2010, killing eight people.
