The people enjoying Pick’n and Fiddl’n at the Petrolia Legion lounge were rushed from the building around 3 pm Wednesday because of a suspected gas leak.
A woman working upstairs in the kitchen smelled natural gas and opened the windows. She became nauseous.
The patrons were told to leave the building as the Petrolia/North Enniskillen Fire Department and paramedics were called. The Oil Springs department also arrived as backup.
The woman was seen by paramedics and the fire department moved into the building to check the natural gas levels. Minutes later, officials told Legion workers the building was safe to reenter and Union Gas was on its way to make sure there wasn’t a problem with any equipment.
