Numerous Crews on Scene of Natural Gas Line Explosion North of Piedmont

SEATTLE (Oil Monster): Numerous crews are at the scene of a natural gas line explosion that occurred Wednesday night north of Piedmont.

Officials said a 12-inch pipeline running under Waterloo Road near Piedmont Road exploded, creating a crater all across the roadway.

Police told KOCO 5 that it's a rural area and very few residents live in the area. The police chief said there are no injuries that he knows of and no evacuations at this time.

Traffic heading east on Waterloo Road is being diverted and the roadway is being shut down, officials said.

Crews are working to control the fire.
