Suburb evacuated over serious gas leak at resort

A NOOSA suburb has been evacuated this morning over a gas leak at The Palms resort.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokeswoman said two crews were called to the resort on Noosa Springs Drive over a severed LPG gas line about 8.40am.

The gas had since been turned off and a gas examiner had been notified.

Firefighers were able to use a water cloud to help disperse the gas and were continuing to monitor the surrounding area, the spokeswoman said.

More to come.
