Are there any public safety concerns or health risks?

There are no direct public safety concerns relating to this incident. Crews will continue to monitor the site and air quality until all remediation is completed. An Air Quality Specialist with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District evaluated the impacted areas on Thursday and had no concerns.

Unfortunately, the smell of gas may linger for days or weeks. San Rafael Fire continues to monitor the lower explosive limit (LEL) in the area, including in confined spaces. It continues to be well within safe limits, meaning there is no explosive risk in open air areas. There is no known risk to public drinking water. To protect our responding crews, please use caution when traveling in the area and be aware of changing traffic conditions.
