A gas leak prompted the evacuation of an apartment building in Moreno Valley Monday morning.

The leak was reported about 9:10 a.m. in the 16300 block of Lasselle Street, when a gas line was damaged amid construction work, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

Riverside County sheriff’s deputies responded to coordinate the evacuation, which was described as precautionary.

There was no immediate word on how many residents were affected or when they would be allowed to return home.
