Fortis Back on Site of Monday Gas Leak
Prince George, B.C.- Crews from Fortis BC will be back on site on Vancouver Street between 10th and 11th Avenues today to repair a problem that caused a gas leak Monday evening.
Emergency crews responded to the scene Monday evening, when the odour of natural gas was detected in the area. The source of the leak has been determined to be a valve underground on Vancouver Street.
Fortis crews spent much of yesterday on scene planning the excavation, and today will be on scene to make the necessary repairs. Fortis expects the repairs will be completed by this evening.
The work is expected to cause disruptions to traffic in the area. Drivers are asked to avoid the area if at all possible.
