A car crashed into the side of a northwest Fresno home, hitting the main gas meter and sparking a fire on Wednesday morning. Fire crews responded to a house near Brawley and San Jose Avenues. Officials say a neighbor's car hit the side of the garage, and the flames ignited. Firefighters and PG&E crews were digging a hole to find the gas line and shut off gas to the meter. Officials said once the gas is off, the fire should go out. Firefighters had stopped the fire from spreading to neighboring structures. The flames damaged the garage.
