The London Fire Department as well as Enbridge Gas are on-scene at a natural gas leak in the downtown core area. It is believed the source of the leak has been located and crews are working now to isolate and rectify the situation.
Although we hope this is resolved soon, this is an evolving situation and the evacuation still remains in place until the London Fire Department confirms the area is safe.
The only area requiring evacuation at this time includes Queens Avenue between Wellington Street and Maitland Street.
Anyone who was evacuated due to the natural gas leak and are not in the immediate area of Queens Avenue between Wellington Street and Maitland Street, can return to their home or business.
Currently, Waterloo Street is closed between Dundas Street and Dufferin Avenue. Queens Avenue is also closed between Waterloo and Colborne streets.
We will provide more information as it becomes available.
