Natural gas odour leads to evacuation

Fire crews evacuated a building at 1353 Elllis Street after someone reported an odour of natural gas.

FortisBC spokesperson David Wylie says a technician was called to the site to asses if the odour was actually natural gas.  

"Our technician found no odour of natural gas and did not find there to be a natural gas leak. Everyone is being allowed back into the building."

Wylie says anyone who detects an odour of natural gas should leave the building immediately and, if possible, open as many doors and windows as they can when they exit.

"Then call us at 1-800-663-9911, or 9-1-1."
