(THUNDER BAY, ON) – An unfortunate turn of events at Lakehead University roughly around 12:45 pm this afternoon, caused a building to be cleared out.
The 1294 Balmoral Building, formerly known as the Northern Ontario Innovation Centre, is currently sorting out a hazardous spill scenario, which sparked a 911 call, leading to several Superior North EMS vehicles and Thunder Bay Fire Rescue to respond on scene. The Paleo-DNA laboratory is on the third floor, however it is unknown at this time if the spill was specifically within this facility.
The spill was located inside the building, and at the time of this writing, nobody was reported to us as injured.
Several people were overheard on scene discussing how the spill has caused some to have issues breathing easily.
Thunder Bay Fire Rescue are on scene working hard to sort out the issue.
