Gas leak in Midway area

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A gas leak forced the brief evacuation of a Home Depot in the Midway area Tuesday afternoon, officials said.

It happened at Midway Drive and Kemper Street at about 1:40 p.m., according to SDG&E. A one-inch service pipe located above ground was ruptured and possibly struck by a vehicle, though no one was at the site when crews arrived for repairs.

The leak was under control by 2:50 p.m.

The Home Depot was reopened shortly thereafter. SDG&E crews were working to restore service to the building. Officials estimated the repair would be complete by 5 p.m. Tuesday.
