(Updated at 9:10 a.m.) There has been a “small” gas leak inside the McLean Community Center, the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department reported this morning (Monday).
Firefighters were on the scene at 1234 Ingleside Avenue around 7 a.m. At that point, the situation was under control, and units were waiting for the gas company to arrive, according to the department.
The facility has been closed for the day, according to the McLean Project for the Arts, which says the leaking gas is carbon monoxide.
In a separate incident, the community center had to be evacuated in October, when workers hit a gas line on Oak Ridge Avenue, causing a leak near the adjacent Dolly Madison Library.
