A gas leak prompted evacuations at an apartment complex in East El Paso.

It happened at around 3pm on the 2100 block of Wedgewood. Firefighters say a construction crew backed into the gas line while building a rock wall.

Three of the 9 units in that complex were evacuated. Texas Gas crews arrived about 45 minutes later to repair the ruptured line. Texas Gas service had to re-route the broken line to not affect the apartments.

The scene is now clear and no injuries were reported.
