Gas leak forces closure of Fruitvale Elementary School

This morning was kicked off with some angst and upset for Fruitvale Elementary School staff, administration, students and parents after a problem with the school's natural gas regulators forced the closure of the school.

School District 20 Superintendent Bill Ford said school administration had been in contact with Fortis over the issue for the past couple of weeks, as a gas odour would intermittently be noticeable throughout the school.
