Firefighters respond to LPG ‘leak’

ON Wednesday, at around 4 p.m., the Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services received a call about a “leaking” industrial LPG tank at the seaport in Lower Base.

But DFEMS public information officer Derek Gersonde said there “was no danger, or anything.”

The LPG tank is fitted with a pressure relief device to relieve excess pressure, he added. “What the caller saw was pressure venting from the tank,” he said.

Responding firefighters “hosed down the LPG tank to cool it down,” he added.
