Road closure for natural gas leak on John Street and Caroline Street

The City of Burlington Fire Department is at the scene of a natural gas leak at a construction site on John Street.

Several neighbouring buildings are being evacuated.

Roads are closed in the area of Caroline, John, Martha and James Street.

The Fire Department is recommending that all downtown buildings keep their windows closed until further notice.

Looks like someone forgot to completely mark where the gas lines were located.
