Gas leak Friday morning in Santa Barbara prompts evacuations

About 30 people were evacuated in Santa Barbara Friday morning after a gas line broke.

It happened around 8:30 a.m. on the 600 block of East Haley Street.

Firefighters say there was a leak in a half inch service line that goes into a building.

Construction crews were out digging for fence posts, and they accidentally hit the line.

People in neighboring buildings were evacuated, and some people were told to take shelter where they were.

Santa Barbara Police closed the traffic during the leak.
