Farleigh fuel stop re-opens after gas danger mitigated

Update: 

FIRE crews have worked to mitigate a gas leak which caused a petrol station in Farleigh to shut this morning. 

A spokeswoman from the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service said the QFES crew on scene left the area after air readings showed there was no longer gas in the air. 

"We are not on scene. Crews notified a gas inspector," she said.

"Air readings were at zero so they made sure things [were] safe when they left. 

The petrol station has now reopened to the public.
