Hazmat on the move

Waterscapes, the tranquil condo development in Kelowna was all but tranquil Monday afternoon. In fact, it looked more like the scene from an action movie as it was stormed by a Hazmat team, the RCMP and firefighters.

Residents were told to not use the elevators as the fully suited Hazmat team went inside the building.

The 'raid' started at around 5:30 p.m. and by 6:30 p.m. it was over, and emergency crews were packing up.

We will have more details as they become available.
