'All clear' at UC Davis West Village after gas leak and evacuations
May 22, 2012
By Dateline staff
A gas leak scare at UC Davis West Village ended without incident around 11 a.m. today (May 22), when campus Fire Chief Nate Trauernicht gave the "all clear" and lifted an evacuation order that had been in place for some apartments as a precautionary measure.
A construction crew accidentally severed a 2-inch underground line around 9:30 a.m. in the vicinity of the northernmost section of the Ramble apartments, off Sage Street. The Sacramento City College Davis Center was not affected.
Pacific Gas and Electric Co. stopped the leak at about 10:30, and the Fire Department kept the evacuation order in place until the power came back on and the air checked out clear.
