Traffic Is Open And The Power Is Back After Gas Leak

 A whole lot of upheaval in East Saint John after contractors working in Forest Hills struck a natural gas line just after 7:30 this morning.
City police barricading the area to traffic and some of the nearby residents on Braemar Drive, Mountain Road and Westmorland Road were evacuated.
District Fire Chief Joe Armstrong tells CHSJ News it's mandatory to evacuate during a natural gas leak.   He says right away they evacuate 30 metres from the leak site and will extend it if necessary. Traffic is re-opened in the area and the power is back on.
