The Seattle Fire Department has just blocked off 26th Avenue, between Spring and Marion Streets. Apparently, utility workers broke a gas line mid-block. Puget Sound Energy is on the scene and I overheard one of the workers saying that it may take all day to repair.
EDITOR’S UPDATE: More details from City Light:
Crews that were digging a hole for a utility pole did hit a gas line for an individual residence near 26th Ave. E and E Spring Street.
The line was not marked on the map of utilities in that area.
The crew reported the incident right away to get repairs made.
