OGDEN — Roughly 30 people were evacuated from their homes Sunday afternoon after a vehicle backed into a natural gas meter and ruptured a gas line, according to Ogden fire officials.
Residents were allowed to return to their homes about 90 minutes after the rupture, according to Ogden Deputy Fire Chief Eric Bauman.
A repair crew from Questar Gas was able to quickly stabilize the gas line, which ruptured near 835 Binford St. and led to the evacuation of 12 homes, Bauman said.
Fire crews remained on the scene with Questar until residents were back in their homes, he said.
By Sunday night, the line was repaired and "restored to normal," Bauman said.
