About the emergency response on California near Hinds

(Added: Photo by Christopher Boffoli)

We have received several questions about a Seattle Fire response that’s been blocking the southbound lanes of California near Hinds. They were originally called there for a suspected gas leak. They couldn’t find evidence of a leak but with Puget Sound Energy‘s help have finally traced the concern to a problem with a meter, which PSE has shut down. The SFD crews will be departing shortly, firefighters just told dispatch.

    I was there when we smelled gas.   Relieved at how fast SFD arrived and checked everything.

    Fire Crews & PSE went around to the surrounding businesses to check on people & were on the roof of Little Donkey. I think they were looking for any emergency contact info as they tried to get in the front door without damaging it.
