Gold Star employees were evacuated Wednesday afternoon after an ambulance hit a gas meter.

The driver was backing in when he broke off the meter at ground level and exposed raw gas.

The building was evacuated while Water, Gas, and Light crews plugged the line.

Albany firefighters ventilated the structure and employees went back to work just before 6:00 p.m.
