Halifax Fire crews were called to the scene of natural gas leak in the Burnside Business Park area Wednesday evening.

An excavator with Dexter Construction hit a line at the corner of Wright and Haliburton avenues.

A few businesses were evacuated as Heritage Gas worked to repair the damage.

Traffic was re-routed around Wright Avenue.

Fire crews evacuated a few buildings in the area. 

Crews are unsure how many people were inside at that time of evacuation.
