    A gas leak at a San Marcos Walmart caused evacuations Sunday afternoon.

    San Marcos Fire Department responded to reports of a gas leak around 3:15 p.m. at the Walmart located at 732 Center Drive, San Diego Sheriff's Department Lt. Gilmore said. 

    A gas meter "impacting the Walmart" store broke, SDG&E spokesperson Allison Torres said. Control crews responded and made emergency repairs to the meter.

    More work will be completed by SDG&E crews Monday morning, Torres said.

    The gas leak was reportedly behind the store, next to the garden center.

    San Marcos Fire crews requested assistance from sheriff's deputies due to the store evacuation.
