All-clear at Regent Mall in Fredericton after reports of natural gas smell

Shoppers and workers at Regent Mall had to be evacuated Thursday night after reports of a natural gas smell.

The Fredericton Fire Department says it received a report of a natural gas odour at the front of Walmart around 8:30 p.m.

Enbridge Gas employees went through the mall with their gas detectors, but did not find any signs of natural gas.

Officials believe the smell was sewer gas, and gave the all-clear just before 10 p.m.
