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.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
