Crews at work on a reconstruction project at a downtown Issaquah gas station struck a gas line Tuesday, prompting a response from Eastside Fire & Rescue and Puget Sound Energy.
The smell of gas filled the air near the construction site at the intersection of Front Street and Sunset Way for several minutes at about noon. Firefighters used traffic cones to cordon off the parking lot at Front Street Market and asked motorists not to start their vehicles near the site.
Crews started a major overhaul at the downtown Shell gas station and Jacksons convenience store Sept. 11.
