The local fire brigade and police in Banská Bystrica ordered more than 500 people to be evacuated on Tuesday because of the leak. SPP had immediately sent its emergency unit to the site to close the shutoffs to prevent gas from leaking into the air.

The first checks of gas concentrations in the air showed that there was no danger of explosion.
