UPDATE: Gas Leak Capped, Evacuations Lifted In Antelope

ANTELOPE (CBS13) – A ruptured gas line forced the evacuation of several homes in Antelope on Friday morning.

The line was capped and the evacuation was lifted at about 11:45 a.m.

A construction crew working on a sidewalk on Singing Tree Way and Walerga Road sliced into the natural gas line at about 10:15, prompting the evacuation of 10 homes and “stay-in-place” orders for other nearby residents.

A breeze in the area prevented the gas from stagnating in the area, a Sac Metro firefighter said.

Sacramento Metro Fire responded to the scene along with PG&E. The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol assisted with traffic control.
