According to ABC 7 on May 16th:

A Los Angeles Department of Water and Power crew punctured a gas line in the 1700 block of N. Cahuenga Boulevard in Hollywood Saturday, prompting precautionary evacuations of more than 100 people from nearby buildings.

“The situation is that where the gas pipe line damage occurred is pretty deep, so now they have to do shoring to hold the walls so that they don’t cave in when they go in their to do the work,” said Denise Campos of the SoCal Gas Co.

“One of the things I do worry about is that it’s gonna be an explosion, you never know. These gas lines are running all up and down this street, through the businesses, the homes, it’s a big problem,” Madera Kitchen and Bar employee Marco Peralta said.

Crews will remain on scene overnight as a precaution.

“We are standing by with firefighting lines in place. This is a hazardous situation, where an inadvertent spark could start a fire so we’re in place for that reason,” said LAFD Capt. Daniel Curry.
