THOUSANDS of households suffered a gas outage for about 12 hours since 10pm yesterday when a gas pipe burst in a residential community in Minhang District.

Gas supply resumed by noon today after the problem was fixed.

More than 1,600 homes were affected with many unable to cook and take a shower.
