Union Gas and the London Fire Department have responded to a number of calls this morning from residents concerned about an unusual odour in parts of the city. Some callers have expressed concern about a possible natural gas leak. Responding crews report that the odour is not natural gas related.
The initial calls originated in the city’s south end. A source of the odour has not been located. At this time, the odour appears to be dissipating and there are no immediate public safety issues.
Union Gas and the London Fire Department continue to investigate the source of the odour and the City’s Emergency Management team is monitoring.
