Arlington County fire truckA gas line rupture has a block in Nauck closed for emergency repairs.

Initial reports suggest a public works crew struck a one-inch gas line on the 2100 block of S. Pollard Street, near Fort Barnard Park and the intersection with S. Walter Reed Drive.

Arlington County police and firefighters are on the scene. Washington Gas was considering ordering an evacuation of houses in a two block radius, but measuring devices indicated that the gas had dissipated, according to scanner traffic.

Currently, only the 2100 block of S. Pollard Street is closed while crews repair the ruptured gas line.
