Gas Leak Near Altona Forces Highway Closure

Part of Highway 30 was closed just north of Altona Tuesday after a chemical gas leak.

RCMP say the leak occurred at a business along the highway at about 5:45 p.m. in the RM of Rhineland.

The highway was closed less than an hour so emergency personnel could stop the leak. Police say although the gas was considered toxic, no one was injured or put at risk.
