(UPDATE: April 20 @ 5:25 am): Residents can now return to their West Kelowna home after firefighters and a dangerous goods team have been called in to investigate a mysterious odor.
The “Do Not Occupy” ordinance on the evacuated building on Elliott Road has now been repealed, said the West Kelowna Fire Department (WKFD).
The residents were evacuated early Sunday morning.
