Gas leak prompts evacuation at Woodbury's Life Time Fitness


Woodbury firefighters were on scene this morning while Xcel Energy crews worked to contain a gas leak at Life Time Fitness.

The leak prompted a complete evacuation of the gym – more than 100 people at the time, according to Life Time workers.

The incident was first reported at 9:42 a.m. after a construction crew attempting to dig a fencepost struck the line. Natural gas was blowing for more than an hour as crews worked to shut off the 2-inch gas main that had been struck.
