Magellan Midstream Partners shut down a segment of pipeline between Fargo, ND, and Grand Forks because of a gasoline leak that prompted the precautionary evacuation of one home.

The “pinhole” leak in the Harwood area this week spilled about 4,200 gallons of gasoline, said spokesman Tom Byers.

The evacuated homeowner was the person who reported a gas smell to Magellan.

There were no injuries in the incident, officials said.

Byers said workers are in the process of removing contaminated soil and they are monitoring air quality. It’s not known how long repairs will take.
