      Downtown Fresno Gas Leak Forces Evacuations

      The Hotel Californian near the old Gottschalks building

      Construction crews caused a gas leak at the old Gottschalks building on the Fulton Mall Wednesday morning.

      Crews were inside the building doing demolition work when a concrete block wall fell on a 2" gas line.

      Workers were evacuated from nearby offices as a safety precaution.

      The leak was repaired and the mall was reopened.

      There were no injuries.
