SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - On Friday, a gas leak shut down a portion of the UTC mall after a construction crew hit a gas line in a parking lot on the western end of the mall. 

A nearby Wells Fargo branch office was evacuated as a precaution. No injuries were reported.

Firefighters also went inside Nordstrom to make sure the fumes were not making anyone sick. 

SDG&E crews continued to work throughout the afternoon to try and fix the leak. 

Heavy traffic on La Jolla Drive continued throughout the Friday afternoon commute.  

CBS News 8's Kelly Hessedal has the detail in the above video report.
