VACAVILLE — Ten people were evacuated from their homes and residents in the neighborhood around the 800 block of Brookwood Drive were told to shelter in place after a road repair crew broke a natural gas line at about 9:45 a.m. in southern Vacaville, according to the Vacaville Fire Department.

Police blocked off the area to traffic while firefighters and police knocked on the doors of 24 homes and evacuated 10 people. There were plans in the works to allow the evacuees to stay at the Three Oaks Community Center, which were put back on the shelf when a crew from the Pacific Gas & Electric Co. capped the line.

The order was given at 10:40 a.m. to lift the shelter in place order, let residents back into their homes and let traffic back in.
