Prince George, B.C.- RCMP say residents forced from their homes in the area of 13th and East Central have been allowed to return.
Earlier today, several containers of a liquid chemical were discovered behind a business in the area. “We would like to thank the member of the public who called us to investigate” says Corporal Craig Douglass, Media Liaison Officer with the Prince George RCMP.
When police responded to the site around 10 this morning, they determined dealing with the buckets was beyond their scope and called in Prince George Fire Rescue.
Although the containers were labelled as Hydrochlor 12, a bleaching agent, the contents did not match the label. A third party chemical disposal company was called in to safely remove and dispose of the contents of the buckets. Cpl Douglass says it may never be known just exactly what was in those buckets, but the matter has been dealt with and all is clear.
