Propane leak at Grand Forks Gas Station led to highway closure and evacuations

An above ground propane leak at the Canco Gas Station in Grand Forks led to the closure of Highway 3 yesterday morning,  and the evacuation of neighbouring buildings, including Grand Forks Secondary, and Perley Elementary.

The Grand Forks Fire Department was successful in stopping the leak, and remained on the scene to make sure the propane dissipated.

The highway was reopened, and residents were allowed back into buildings at 1:40 in the afternoon
