Natural gas line break prompts evacuations in La Mesa

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - Things are back to normal in a La Mesa neighborhood after a natural gas line break forced the evacuation of several homes.

A heartland fire engine was driving along the five-thousand block of Bancroft Drive this morning when firefighters noticed the strong smell of natural gas in the area.

Five nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution.

SDG&E crews say tree roots likely ruptured the gas line leading into one house.
