PHOTOS: Firefighters have contained a fire and gas leak caused by a propane truck crash in Gridley.
The truck crashed and caught fire Monday morning near the intersection of Colusa Highway and Hatch Road.
The injured driver was rescued from the burning truck then taken to the hospital for treatment.
When fire crews arrived, propane was leaking from the truck and catching fire.
The fire spread to nearby rice fields and burned 30 acres, Cal Fire says.
Firefighters were able to stop the leak and prevent a large explosion. The fire as a whole was contained Monday afternoon.
Evacuations were in place for the area within a mile of the crash scene. Colusa Highway was closed at Pennington Road for several hours.
