Chain Lake Drive has reopened following a large propane leak Thursday morning.
"We had a full propane truck, roughly 6,000 litres of propane, with a mechanical problem on the bottom of the delivery mechanism and unable to shut it off," explained Halifax Fire and Emergency assistant chief of operations Chuck Bezanson.
He said crews were able to stop the leak and the truck has been taken to a repair facility.
"We needed to evacuate all the businesses downwind from the propane because we had some pretty heavy readings of propane," Bezanson added.
Nova Scotia Power had to cut off electricity to the area, which affected nearly 1,000 customers. Power has since been restored.
In addition, Nova Scotia Health had to temporarily close its Bayers Lake primary assessment centre, but it has since reopened.
"People with booked appointments should attend as scheduled," said Nova Scotia Health in a news release. "Those whose appointments were missed during the temporary closure Thursday morning will be contacted to rebook."
