The Jim Ciccone Civic Centre was evacuated at 4:30 p.m. today, July 4, after a reported ammonia leak.
The Prince Rupert fire department evacuated everyone from the centre after the alarm sounded. The centre will remain closed until further notice from the city.
In a notification on the city’s app, it states most people had already left the civic centre for the day after summer camps ended.
More to come.
