New Taipei gas leak not danger to public: officials

TAIPEI -- A gas leak was found Sunday at a liquified petroleum gas fueling station in New Taipei's Sanchong District, though officials said there were no safety concerns after emergency measures were taken by the city fire bureau and the station operator.

The leak was reported at about 5 a.m. on Sunday when area residents reported an unusual smell coming from the gas station operated by CPC Corp., a state-owned gasoline supplier, according to the fire bureau.

Firefighters said they diluted the concentrated liquefied petroleum gas in the air with a water spray to reduce immediate dangers from any leak, which could have resulted from an aged or malfunctioning valve in the station's pipelines.
