A construction crew in El Dorado Hills hit a gas line late Friday morning, prompting a brief evacuation of two homes along Gresham Drive.

The rupture happened in the El Dorado Hills gated community of Serrano.

Workers were “immediately engulfed” in fire when their tractor hit the line, according El Dorado Hills Fire Battalion Chief Mike Lilienthal.

The operators of the tractor are expected to be fine, though they are said to be very shaken up.

The tractor and part of a home’s front yard were left charred.
