The St. Anthony Fire Department has reopened Goose Cove Road to traffic. Fire Chief Levi Reid said the road will remain open until the contractor is on the scene to remove the cylinder.
The St. Anthony Fire Department is currently waiting on a contractor to remove the one tonne chlornine tank.
According to Fire Cheif Levi Reid the shipper - based in Corner Brook - is responsible for the removal of its property.
He said the department doesn't have the equipment to handle the container itself, but will stay on the scene to monitor the situation.
There doesn't appear to be any leakage from cylinder as of right now. Department members have yet to attempt an extraction, as they are still awaiting procedure guidance
The St. Anthony Fire Department shut down access to Goose Cove Road - Ultramar to the Haven Inn - at 10 a.m.
It is being reported by onsite department members that a one tonne chlorine cylinder had fallen off of a truck and into a ditch.
Members cordoned off the area and are seeking guidance as to protocol for removal.
The Northern Pen will report more as it becomes available.
