Ward One Councillor Sharon Barkely posted on the Hawthorne Villager last night information about a gas line being cut by accident in the 4th line area which affected a number of homes. Work will continue in the area and at last note from our Milton Fire Department is Union Gas is working on reconnecting roughly 130 homes back to their gas lines. The last word we received was that the target for completion was 830AM this morning, but as of 930AM I havent received an update.
No one was hurt and unlike back almost a year ago, no fires were started thankfully.
We should have an update soon on the status of those homes so stay tuned to either the Hawthorne Villager or here for details.
