Gas leak briefly forces evacuations along Elliott Avenue

Four buildings along Elliott Avenue were evacuated this afternoon because of a gas leak.  The leak started about 1pm in the 1400 block of Elliott.  KING 5 reports that crews were doing some routine maintenance when they broke a pipe.  The southbound lanes of Elliott going past the site were also closed.  The leak was capped in about 30 minutes.
