Two homes will remain evacuated Friday morning in unincorporated Santa Clara County until a roughly 500-gallon home propane tank that was leaking is emptied, a county fire captain said.
The tank started leaking when it was damaged by a mudslide and fallen tree, according to a report taken by the fire department at 10:34 a.m.
in the 19000 block of Beardsley Road, near the Lexington Reservoir.
The leak has been stopped and no one was injured, fire Capt. Bill Murphy said. A propane company has been called to empty the tank, Murphy said.
