RANCHO CORDOVA (CBS13) – Evacuations have been lifted after a garbage truck backed into a building and severed its fuel line late Wednesday morning.

The scene was in Rancho Cordova along the 10000 block of Old Placerville Road.

According to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, a caller reported hearing an explosion in the area around 10:45 a.m. Metro Fire crews responded and found that a natural gas-powered dump truck had backed into a building.

A small leak prompted momentary concern in the area. But, Metro Fire says the leak has dissipated and all evacuations have been lifted.
