A leaking 45kg gas cylinder has prompted an evacuation of
a Dunedin street this afternoon.
Emergency services were called to Melbourne St, South
Dunedin, following reports of a "strong smell of gas in the
area'', a Fire Service spokeswoman said.
Several properties were evacuated, and a cordon was put in
place to allow firefighters to isolate the leaking cylinder.
