The Seychelles Fire and Rescue Services Agency (SFRSA) was alerted yesterday afternoon on a potential gas leak at Oceana Fisheries.
Immediately two trucks were deployed on the scene, but arriving on the site firefighters found no potential hazardous gas present in the air.
SFRSA spokesperson Jones Madeleine stated that they received a phone called alerting them on a potential gas leak.
“Arriving on the scene, we discovered that some workers were doing maintenance work on a condenser, and they smelled a gas odour, so they alerted us as a precautionary measure,” he said.
Mr Madeleine has however advised that before doing such work, people should alert the SFRSA, “so that we can inform them of the potential risks”.
