Witt St home Gas leak

By Simon Ruppert

Police and CFA are on the scene of a suspected gas leak at a property on Witt St.

A passer-by raised the alarm after smelling gas, which they believed was coming from the home.

Police are attempting to contact the occupiers as no one is home at present.

Experts are checking the connection on the exterior of the property.

A CFA spokesperson on the scene said he believes it is just a gas regulator venting a small amount, which is commonplace and part of the way the system works.

However he also said that they will remain until they are sure where the smell is coming from and that if anyone thinks they smell gas they should always contact emergency services to check the situation.
