Gas leaks caused by lightning strike in Oxley

Four houses have been evacuated tonight in Oxley by ACT Fire & Rescue as a precaution because of two gas leaks.

The leaks are located close to each other on Newman Morris Circuit and are believed to have started after lightning struck a light pole.

Firefighters have a 50 to 100 metre exclusion zone around the leaks and are waiting for contractors to arrive to cut off the gas supply and carry out repairs.
