A gas leak sent five people in Victoria to the emergency room Thursday morning.

Emergency workers evacuated a building at Houston House Apartments, 103 Cornwall Drive, about 7:40 a.m. after several people became ill.

Victoria Fire Marshal Thomas Legler said nine people sought medical attention and that five were hospitalized. Their conditions were unavailable, and their names weren't released Friday night.

The cause is under investigation, and the fire marshal's office is still working with the apartment complex to identify from which apartment the gas leaked.

Officials at the apartment complex declined to comment.
