Rats infest south fire station forcing crews to relocate

An infestation of rats forces fire crews out of a Riverside South Station Sunday morning.

Ottawa Fire says human activity in the building should be avoided as they team up with exterminators to solve the problem.

Fire crews have been reassigned to work out of two other stations: #44 on 1075 Greenbank Road and #32 on 3202 Leitrim Road.

Officials says this is not a public safety issue.

The length of time crews are being restationed is unknown.
