Firefighters contain fire outside Livermore house

Fire crews have contained a fire outside of a home in Livermore on Monday morning, according to fire officials.

The Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department received the call about the blaze at 5:25 a.m. at 2146 Buckskin Road, battalion chief Kurtis Dickey said. A fire from the outside of a home extended into the garage and was contained around 6:10 a.m.

According to Dickey, a gas meter has broken and crews are waiting for PG&E to turn off the gas. Dickey mentioned the gas coming out of the meter is an active fire and "looks like a blowtorch" that they'll have to let burn until PG&E arrives on scene. Fire crews are monitoring that blaze.

Nobody was injured but the residents of the home will be displaced, Dickey said. A fire investigator has been called to the scene. No further information is immediately available.

I know what everybody's thinking...PG&E's fault again. They just can't win...even if it isn't their fault, it's still their fault.

@James Michael-not me-my daughter saw the police removed several weed plants from the house. more than it is legal. I am thinking illegal growing caused this one since their gas shut off lines were secured and couldn't be access. (just saying)
