Limassol port gas leak contained (Updated)

The fire services have finished an operation to contain a gas leakage after taking all the necessary safety measures, they announced on Friday morning.

The services had been working all night to contain a leakage from cylinders outside Limassol port which was detected on Thursday afternoon.

Four vehicles were dealing with the incident by constantly cooling the cylinders and the leakage was contained after a valve was closed.

The cylinders contain the highly flammable gas acetylene, spokesman of the fire services Andreas Kettis said.

According to Kettis, there was no danger to the public as the leak was in an open space and the area had been cordoned off.
