UTAH COUNTY, Utah (ABC4) – Evacuations have been lifted for residents in the Eagle Mountain area, Saturday morning.

According to the Unified Fire Authority Captain Steve Conger, the gas leak was a product of a car backing up and knocking off a meter attached to the side of a house.

Officials say after the meter was knocked down, evacuations were immediately issued using a reverse 911 call.

A reverse 911 call is a public safety communications technology used by public safety organizations in Canada and the United States to communicate with groups of people in a defined geographic area.

Captain Conger tells ABC4 that the gas leak is no longer a threat and evacuations have since been lifted.
