The Fire Service says people are allowed back into buildings in part of central Auckland after a ruptured gas line prompted their evacuation.

Part of Elliot Street, including the Mid City Shopping Centre, was cleared at 10.40am on Monday.

Vector says a contractor had damaged the gas line, but the leak has been isolated and the area is safe.

Vector will remain at the scene to finish the repairs.
