Subcontractor ruptures gas main on NE 205th Thursday

Sunday, August 28, 2011

As first reported in the MLTNews, a PSE subcontractor hit and ruptured a 4” Gas Main at 9am on Thursday, August 25, 2011 on NE 205th and 19th NE, on the Shoreline side of the county line. The north side of the street is Snohomish county, 244th SW and 56th Ave W.

Multiple agencies responded.  Shoreline Fire was on scene as the "safety precaution" team.  Seattle City Light turned off power in the area.

People in four homes were evacuated as a precaution. There were no injuries reported.

Shoreline Fire concluded their part and left at noon.

We have contacted PSE for a statement and will update when they respond.
