Residents displaced by large gas leak in Mississauga expected to go home

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Residents displaced by a large gas leak in Mississauga, Ont., are expected to be allowed back home this morning.

Fire officials say some 27 homes had to be evacuated after construction workers struck a gas main early Monday afternoon.

Platoon chief Luigi Davoli said Monday night a leak of that size is “very uncommon.”

He said the gas being released sounded like “a loud jet engine.”

Firefighters say workers with the gas company Enbridge have been repairing the site and are expected to complete the work this morning.

They say the utility will do “one last sweep for air quality” before residents are given the green light to return.
