Building evacuated during gas leak - North Sydney

Published: 05 Dec 2022 02:03pm

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) crews have evacuated around 50 people during a gas leak in a North Sydney apartment building.

It's believed workers severed a gas main at the William Street site, just before 12.30pm today.

NSW Police helped firefighters from Crows Nest and Neutral Bay to clear the adjacent building.

The fire crews have established two lines of hose as a protective measure and are monitoring atmospheric levels as gas company technicians attempt to repair the leak, which could take some time.

An exclusion zone remains in place in William Street, preventing pedestrian and vehicle access to the affected area.
