Shortly after 2 p.m., construction workers hit a gas line in a backyard. As gas leaked into the air, officials asked residents on Theatre Drive to evacuate their homes, while those living at a nearby mobile home park were asked to shelter in place.

Southern California Gas personnel arrived at the scene quickly and stopped the leak.
