Gas line broken in Sapperton
A two-inch natural gas line was broken this afternoon in Sapperton, forcing the evacuation of the immediate area.
It appears workers demolishing a home on Kent Street, near 10th Avenue, ruptured the line.
Fire crews and emergency medical services were on scene, and a neighbour said the smell of gas could be noticed from two blocks away. Houses in the area were evacuated.
