Homeowners evacuated after gas line ruptured on Bear Mountain

Landscaping crew accidentally struck line near retaining wall

Residents of Troon Court on Bear Mountain were evacuated from their homes at around noon Monday after an excavator working along a retaining wall accidentally ruptured a gas line leading from the street, said Langford Fire Department fire prevention officer Chris Aubrey.

Fortis was called to repair the damage and nearby residents were allowed back to their homes after a relatively short time.
