At approximately 7:15 p.m. on Dec. 28, the Swan River Fire Department (SRFD) and the local RCMP were called to investigate an unknown irritant at 124 Fifth Avenue South – also known as the Conrad Apartments. “Upon initial investigation a higher level of carbon monoxide was detected and, with RCMP help, fire crews evacuated the building,” said SRFD Fire Chief Darren Fedorchuk. “Fire crews then used ventilation fans to dissipate the levels of carbon monoxide.” There were no injuries or treatment required and the incident remains under investigation.
