A gas leak shut down parts of the USC campus and some surrounding streets Tuesday.Construction crews using a rotary saw reportedly ruptured a four-inch, high pressure gas line shortly after 10:30 a.m., at the construction site of the new Cinema School.

According to USC, the Los Angeles Fire Department evacuated a few buildings around the area and completely closed McClintock Avenue between 34th Street and Downey Way.

A crew from the Southern California Gas Company arrived about an hour later to contain the leak.
