Crews stop ‘serious’ gas leak that forced the closure of Winnipeg road: Manitoba Hydro
Emergency crews have stopped a “serious” natural gas leak in Winnipeg, after spending the majority of the day on Tuesday searching for and repairing the leak.
On Tuesday evening, a tweet from Manitoba Hydro said crews stopped the gas leak in the area of King Edward Street and Alexander, and are working on repairs.
