Community Warning Issues As Gas Leak Evacuates Homes
More than fifteen homes have been evacuated after workmen damaged a gas pipe in Reservoir, north of Melbourne.
Emergency services are now on the scene of the leaking gas pipe at the intersection of Broadway and Lindsay Streets.
It is believe the damage was done by workmen moving equipment earlier on today.
A 100m exclusion zone has been set up around the scene.
A community warning has been issued, and the general public are advised to avoid the area, the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) said.
Police, ambulance and the MFB are awaiting the arrival of gas maintenance crews to repair the leak.
MFB are expected to be on the scene until later this afternoon.
