Crews arrived on scene and patched the line from the tank using an absorbant material that will catch any excess gas.

CAL FIRE said the scene is now clear and no gas fumes are coming from that area.

Another mostly sunny and hot day for northern California today, quite similar to yesterday. Our weather will begin to change tomorrow, however, as a disturbance brings more clouds, cooler air, and a few showers and thunderstorms.
