Leaking gas fills abandoned building in Mira Mesa

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A construction crew severed a natural gas line at a Mira Mesa site Wednesday, and workers temporarily evacuated the site while the line was pinched off and repaired.

Workers digging along 7700 Miramar Road accidentally ruptured a gas line about 8:30 a.m., according to Maurice Luque of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

A San Diego Gas & Electric repair crew was dispatched to fix the line, which took about two hours, Luque said.
