St.Hyacinthe firefighters were called on St.Pierre street after construction workers broke a 4-inch natural gas pipe. The haz-mat team was deployed and a haz-mat command post was quickly activated. Thanks to constant communications with the local weather station, firefighters were able to predict movements of the gas cloud and evacuate residents accordingly.
