Investigators are trying to determine what caused a car to crash into an abandoned home near Ashlan and Manila.

Fire officials say the car hit a gas line - forcing people in six nearby houses to evacuate while crews worked to stop the leak.

Cal Fire says the breezy weather helped disperse the flammable gas.

The driver suffered minor injuries, and it's not known if the person was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
