Crews with Manitoba Hydro are in the process of squeezing shut a gas line that was damaged earlier today by a contractor working in the Maples.
The gas leak around 8:45 a.m. forced the evacuation of at least a dozen homes in the area near Adsum Drive and Duval Street.
Several streets are still blocked off in the area.
Hydro spokesman Scott Powell said no timetable was given for the repair.
No health concerns due to the leak have been reported.
