Ruptured gas line prompts evacuations in Mira Mesa

Posted: Updated:

MIRA MESA (CBS 8) - San Diego Gas and Electric Crews worked throughout the night to repair a broken gas line that forced evacuations in a Mira Mesa neighborhood.

The break was reported just after 6:00 p.m. Wednesday at Andasol Street and Birds View Court.

The fire department says city crews were using a tractor to put in new water lines when they rubbed up against a gas line, causing it to rupture.

When fire crews arrived, they evacuated 14 homes near the broken line.

Residents were let back in their homes after about five hours.
