The Regina Police Service is reporting its investigation into the strong chemical odour in the 2000 block of 14th Avenue is now concluded. There is no threat to the public.
Members of the Explosives Disposal Unit (EDU), together with HazMat team members from Regina Fire and Protective Services, were called to the residence this afternoon to investigate complaints of a potential health hazard. Investigation into the air quality revealed no hazards to the public, but a search of the residence revealed a package of concern. This package was transported to the RPS training pit outside the city, where it was opened by EDU. Further investigation revealed nothing unusual about the contents of the package.
Public access on 14th Avenue has been restored. The Regina Police Service thanks the public for its patience while the investigation was being conducted.
