Gas Main Break at UCSD School of Medicine Quickly Capped, Students Let Back In

A gas main break at the UC San Diego School of Medicine prompted the brief evacuation of two buildings, according to a UCSD spokeswoman.

The break was caused by construction on the south side of Stein Clinical Research Building Tuesday afternoon, according to the alert. 

The gas leak was quickly isolated and the gas flow turned off, said UCSD spokeswoman Laura Margoni. 

The Stein Clinical Research and Medical Genetics buildings were evacuated. 

UCSD officials said everyone should be let back into the buildings by 3:05 p.m.

No other information was immediately available.
