Fairfax County Fire and Rescue officials said the trail was shut down near the 12100 block of Sunset Hills Road around 9:15 a.m. this morning.
The situation was “under control” shortly after it began, fire officials said. Workers with the gas company stopped the leak around noon today.
“The trail was shut down as a precaution,” said Fairfax Fire and Rescue spokesman Bill Delaney. “Everything seemed to be pretty benign.”
