IN PHOTOS: Gas leak shuts down Roma streets

A CHLORINE leak at a reservoir shut down multiple streets in Roma as emergency crews rushed to the scene.

Just after midday, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) were called to the scene of a chlorine leak at a reservoir on the corner of Miscamble and Queen Sts.

QFES firefighter Chris Coggan said a Maranoa Regional Council contractor attended the building and smelt chlorine, that’s when he decided to call fire services. .

A nearby home was evacuated due to the smell and police closed the intersection to all traffic.

Four fire and emergency teams were called to the site plus one police unit and an ambulance as a precaution.

Just before 2pm, Coggan said it was a small chlorine leak from a pumping station in a shed.

He said the area is now safe and the resident was able to return home.
