The Hamilton Fire department's hazardous materials (HAZMAT) team has been called out to the Metro store on Governor's Road in Dundas. The three streets encircling the store have been closed to traffic: Governor's Road, Hatt Street and Ogilvie Street.
Reports indicate that the issue is a gas leak at the store. According to Spectator report Matthew Van Dongen, the building has been evacuated safely and there have been no injuries.
Update: the gas was identified as a freon leak from a compressor. The leak has been closed and the store is being ventilated.
Update 2: As of 2:30 PM, the streets are all open again.
