Hospital remains open after construction crews hit a gas line

A backhoe caused a gas leak late this morning, closing a section of the hospital district along Pandosy Street.

FortisBC is on site working to contain the leak and traffic is being asked to reroute between Cadder and Rose avenues.

"No injuries are reported or expected," a statement Kelowna RCMP issued just after noon read.

Those trying to access the hospital are being asked to do so via Strathcona Avenue.
