Residents have been allowed to return home after a gas leak prompted the evacuation of three properties in Fernie on Monday.
At about 1 p.m. on May 28, the City of Fernie issued a notice warning the public to avoid the Aspen Crescent area due to a gas line leak at a residential property.
Fernie Fire Rescue was on scene and evacuated three properties, while they waited for Fortis BC to arrive.
“Fortis BC has been contacted and will be on site shortly to make repairs,” read the City of Fernie’s post.
“In the meantime, please avoid the area.”
About an hour later, the City advised the leak had been fixed and the area was safe for residents to resume normal activity.
They thanked the public for their cooperation.
