The wrath of god strikes Oxley gas lines

johnboy 24 December 2012

Four houses have been evacuated tonight in Oxley by ACT Fire & Rescue as a precaution because of two gas leaks.

The leaks are located close to each other on Newman Morris Circuit and are believed to have started after lightning struck a light pole.

Firefighters have a 50 to 100 metre exclusion zone around the leaks and are waiting for contractors to arrive to cut off the gas supply and carry out repairs.

6:57 PM

Contractors have turned off the gas leak.

ACT Fire & Rescue has removed the exclusion zone and informed residents they can return to their homes.
