Gas Leak Prompts Evacuations in La Jolla

A gas leak at a construction site prompted authorities to evacuate several buildings Tuesday morning when workers accidentally ruptured a gas line in the 8900 block of Villa La Jolla Drive, which was also closed temporarily to southbound traffic. Firefighters were called to the construction site at about 7:45 AM, according to reports, and were able to get the leak under control by about 9:20. The evacuations were lifted a short time later and no injuries were reported as a result of the accident.
