REDDING, Calif. - Several buildings have been evacuated after crews hit a gas line in Redding on Friday morning near Benton Drive on North Market Street.

Officials told Action News Now crews were fixing a sewer line behind Artistic Body & Paint when they hit a gas line just after 10 a.m.

Several buildings were evacuated in a 300-foot radius of the shop with one lane of North Market Street being shut down.

PG&E has clamped the gas line and are now working on repairs.

Both lanes of North Market Street are back open.

A welcome cooling trend is ahead through Friday, but dry, warmer and windy conditions will bring elevated fire danger this weekend.
