One hundred people were evacuated from a Citrus Heights apartment complex early this morning after an unidentified vehicle backed into a bank of gas meters causing a gas leak.
The vehicle had fled the scene at 7640 Auburn Road when Sacramento Metro Fire responded to a call at about 3 a.m.
The department started evacuating people from their homes, said the Metro Assistant Chief Scott Cockrum.
Pacific Gas & Electric went to the scene and capped the gas meters. The fire department started allowing people back into their homes about 4:45 a.m.
