Gas leak closes Coquitlam road
Several apartment buildings in Coquitlam were evacuated Tuesday afternoon after an excavator hit a gas line in the area.
The leak impacted several city blocks and forced the closure of Clarke Road near the Burnaby border.
Buses were rerouted around the area and fire and emergency crews spent hours at the scene.
Evacuees were allowed to return home later Tuesday night and the roads were re-opened.
