LA JOLLA (CNS) – There were evacuations in the UTC area after a gas leak early Thursday morning.

Construction workers ruptured a two-inch gas line in the vicinity of University Towne Center mall in La Jolla, authorities said.

The accident in the 4300 block of La Jolla Village Drive, near Executive Way, was reported just before 4 a.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

A San Diego Gas & Electric crew was dispatched to stop the leak and repair the line.

Depending on when the gas is shut off, mall operations could be affected, authorities said.
