A natural gas leak in Prince George yesterday prompted a swift response from FortisBC.
The leak occurred in the Hart division at the intersection of Berwick Drive and Highland Drive, at around noon yesterday. Five homes on Berwick Drive were evacuated, with the help of the Prince George fire department, to ensure the safety of the residents.
Crews fought to keep the leak, caused by a third party gas line strike, under control after their arrival on scene.
They are now working diligently to repair the gas line, though the leak itself is under control. There is no timeline for the repairs.
