A large gas leak has forced the evacuation of at least one building in a Mira Mesa shopping center Thursday night.
A security guard initially reported a hissing sound around 7:40 p.m. at the Mira Mesa Strip Mall in the 10000 block of West View Parkway, right off Interstate 15.
Fire officials said when firefighters arrived, they found a major gas leak.
One restaurant, O's American Kitchen, has been evacuated.
An alleyway behind the Ross store was closed while SDG&E worked to fix the lead. No injuries were reported as of 8:30 p.m.
