Copper pipe leak

In my basement I have a cold water copper pipe that has a leak at one of the elbows. I have duct work that is boxed in and finished with drywall. my problem is on how I can fix that leak without damage to the deywall? Is there a fix where I don't have to use a torch on it , there is also three sets of wires within inches of this pipe..........

You need full access to the fitting, and a flame-retardant cloth over the wires while soldering. No quick fixes in this issue, and drywall can be easily replaced after the repair is made.
