A landscaper may have been responsible for a gas leak which forced the evacuation of the Willowbrook Shopping Centre in Langley on Thursday morning (May 16).
A gas line near the Fraser Highway and Langley Bypass corner of the shopping complex was damaged around 8:30 a.m., and the evacuation order was issued shortly after multiple police and fire vehicles arrived on the scene.
Some employees who had been evacuated told The Times they were informed a landscaping contractor caused the damage.
The yellow caution tape was taken down and staff were allowed to return around 10 a.m.
There were no reported injuries.
