About 30 UC Davis students were evacuated from their apartments Tuesday morning due to a natural gas leak in the West Village housing area, campus fire officials said.
The leak began at about 8:45 a.m. when a construction crew accidentally severed a two-inch natural gas line near Sage and Pistacia streets, UCD Fire Chief Nathan Trauernicht said.
As a precaution, emergency personnel cleared four student housing buildings surrounding the leak until the gas line could be repaired by PG&E, Trauernicht said.
No injuries or illnesses were reported, and fire officials lifted the evacuation order after the gas line was repaired at about 10:30 a.m. The nearby Sacramento City College Davis Center was not affected by the incident.
