WORKERS have been evacuated from Victoria's Shell Refinery in Geelong following a propane gas leak.

A spokesman from the Country Fire Authority (CFA) said 25 firefighters were currently at the refinery in the Geelong suburb of Corio, south-west of Melbourne.
CFA said the gas leak, which is believed to be coming from a tower at the site, was reported about 9.05am (AEST).

The amount of gas leaking is not known.

People from the surrounding area have also been evacuated as a precaution, CFA said.
