ACAMPO -- PG&E crews are working to restore gas to 689 customers in Acampo.

Around 2 p.m. Thursday a farmer plowing a field in the area hit a 6-inch steel pipe gas line off of West Taddei Road which caused the customers to lose gas service.

Repairs to the line were completed around 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

Crews returned Friday around 7:30 a.m. to shut off gas valves and run tests.

After testing the line, PG&E crews began going to every home to relight pilot lights. As of Friday night, pilot lights to 183 homes still needed to be relit. Crews will work through the night in order to finish the job.
