Contractors installing a new light pole near 6425 196th St. S.W. nicked a small gas line outside the Lynnwood Rotary Center on Tuesday.

“No evacuations were necessary as it was an external leak,” said Julie Moore, City of Lynnwood spokeswoman.

Puget Sound Energy crews were able to secure the area and replace the line within two hours.
