The fire brigade wanted the local residents to be brought to safety first, and then to carry out further research, reports a spokesman.
The residents were taken care of by the police. We are still looking at where the evacuated people can go.
The gas leak is found in the Rietvinkstraat, where about 40 houses have been vacated on both sides. Where the gas comes from is still unclear. The fire department will investigate this together with network administrator Stedin.
