Gas smell lingers after leak fixed in Wilsonton Heights

UPDATE: Firefighters are monitoring the remnants of a gas leak which has left an odour lingering in the air near the intersection of Hogg and Port Sts.

A Queensland Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said crews were initially called to the Wilsonton Heights scene at 7.15pm yesterday.

She said there had been a leak at a premises in the area which was fixed.

However, crews were called back to the scene four hours later after reports of a lingering gas smell.

"The odour gets stored in the soil," the spokeswoman said.

"Everything is safe.

"There will be a smell around for the next few days."
