Everett Fire

Two firefighters check out the area where the gas line was leaking.

A forklift reportedly hit the natural gas line.

The leak was near the loading dock.

A couple of nervous moments for the crew and customers at the Floor and Decor Store on Everett Mall Way Saturday morning.

A natural gas line in near the ceiling of the store was reportedly nicked by a forklift around 10 AM.

That caused a leak and led to the evacuation of the store and a call to Everett Fire.

Firefighters opened up the building and shut off the gas.

After about 30 minutes the employees were allowed back in and business resumed as normal.
