Global News has reported on a recent call to Vancouver Fire and Rescue Service’s hazmat team about an unidentified substance at a downtown health centre.
The lobby at Pender Health Centre on Pender Street in the city’s downtown east side was evacuated due to a dark “liquid-like substance.”
When specialists arrived, however, it turned out to be nothing more threatening than some spilled motor oil.
Vancouver Assistant Fire Chief Sheldon Young described the call as a false alarm.
