UPDATE: Construction blamed for Alki gas leak on 55th SW

1:54 PM: Thanks to the neighbor who sent that photo and word of Seattle Fire‘s multiple-unit dispatch to a gas leak in the 2400 block of 55th SW. No word of injuries, nor do we know the circumstances yet, but we do know Puget Sound Energy has arrived and just shut off the gas.

5:35 PM: We talked to SFD spokesperson Kyle Moore about what happened. He says a construction crew working to build a driveway accidentally punctured the 1″ gas line. One person who was home in a nearby house was evacuated for about half an hour until utility crews took care of the situation.

    Isn’t that a big fine unless they called first before they dug?

Sorry, comment time is over.
