EMERGENCY services workers have cleared the scene of a gas leak in Mollison Street.
Bendigo CFA senior station officer Bruce Quarrier said contractors using an auger accidentally broke a gas line.
"They'd marked the area out but these things happen from time to time," he said.
"It didn't cause too much disruption.
"We were probably there for about 20 minutes."
Police blocked the Williamson Street entry to Mollison Street for a short period of time.
