Update: Emergency response at Spruce construction site

(Photo substituted 9:27 am for traffic-camera image that was here previously)
8:32 AM: Huge response, including units from across the bridge, rushing to 3922 SW Alaska – the Spruce construction site. The callout is for a “major natural-gas leak.” Updates shortly.

8:50 AM: Added the traffic camera showing emergency vehicles on the north side of Alaska.

8:58 AM: Our crew says Puget Sound Energy has just arrived, and workers from the site are across the street by Trader Joe’s until they get the all-clear:

Traffic IS getting by.

9:13 AM: Seattle Fire spokesperson Kyle Moore says crews shut off the gas before PSE arrived. No injuries reported.

    I love that I drove by there & thought, “How weird, they’re all standing together by Trader Joe’s–maybe it’s a Monday morning staff meeting?” Duhhhr. Glad everyone’s ok: that’s a scary way for them to start their week!

    Heard the response but didn’t think much about it living this close to the firehouse. Good thing it didn’t take the neighborhood with it.

Sorry, comment time is over.
