An overnight gas leak forced nearly 200 residents out of their homes on Saturday night.
Around 8:15 p.m., Surrey Fire responded for a report of a gas smell coming from a vacant house in the 14300 block of 60th Avenue.
After checking out the house, Surrey Fire discovered a gas leak and ordered an evacuation of the area. Two TransLink busses came to keep the nearby residents out of the cold.
All residents within a one-block radius of the house were evacuated. They were allowed to go back to their homes around 10:30 p.m.
FortisBC was called on-scene to shut down the gas line. The cause of the leak is still under investigation.
More to come.
