The home was a rental under renovation by the owner. Lieutenant Rodney Harr of Gridley police said the driver was pulling up into the driveway and hit the gas pedal instead of the brake, causing the car went to go through a fence and into the house.

PG&E is in the process of digging into the gas line to shut it off at the services of valves throughout the city. They are discussing shutting off some utilities in the area to possibly 100 residents in the area, Lieutenant Harr said.

The immediate area was evacuated, CAL FIRE, PG&E, Gridley police, and Gridley public works responded to the scene.

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.
