SAN DIEGO — Evacuations were ordered following a gas leak in Otay Mesa Friday, said officials.

Evacuations were ordered within 400 feet of La Media Road and Kerns Street.

The area located near the the Otay Mesa Port of Entry did not impact border operations.

The gas leak was the result of a construction site with a gas line break, said Monica Munoz, a spokeswoman for San Diego Fire-Rescue.
