‘Major’ Gas Leak on USC Campus Prompts Evacuation of Business Building
A gas leak at a construction site on the USC campus briefly triggered the evacuation of a business building Monday morning, officials said.
The gas leak was reported just after 7:20 a.m. near the building in the 3700 block of South Vermont Avenue, said Amy Bastman, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Fire Department. USC officials said the gas leak was on the main campus.

By 9:21 a.m., the gas leak was stopped and the evacuation ended, officials said.
