Construction crews sparked a gas main fire Monday afternoon in Lavallette, Ocean County.

Around 1:30 p.m. a construction crew was doing work on White Avenue and Bay Boulevard when a gas main was struck and the line caught fire.

A smell of gas filled the air and a three to four foot flame shot up from the ground.

Crews turned off the gas and the fire burned itself out within a half hour.

No one was hurt.
