Residents were treated outside the Brookwood Apartments on Princess Thursday for exposure to an unknown substance.

 

hilliwack firefighters were called out to the 46100-block of Princess Ave. just before 8 p.m. Thursday after reports that a couple of people weren't feeling well after a noxious smell was discovered in the air.

 

Tenants were decontaminated as they evacuated the building.

 

A lot of times these types of calls involve drug lab chemicals, however that has not been confirmed with the fire department.
