OVIEDO, Fla. -

The Oviedo Mall was evacuated Tuesday morning because of a gas leak.

"Oviedo Fire Dept working a potential gas leak at Kay Jewelers at Oviedo Mall. Source undetermined just yet. Partial evacuation," @OviedoFire tweeted.

Less than 30 minutes later, however, firefighters tweeted, "Gas leak at Oviedo Mall concluded. Hazard resolved. Occupancy permitted. Operations concluded."

Earlier, employees told patrons about the situation, and guests filed out of the mall.

A ClickOrlando.com user sent photos showing a crowd of people gathered outside one of the mall entrances.

No injuries were reported.
