A construction crew working on the former Forever 21 building off of Madonna Rd. in San Luis Obispo severed a two-inch gas line Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters evacuated the immediate area while SoCalGas crews worked to repair the broken line.

The building is being converted into a Sprouts grocery store.
