False fire alarm at Kelowna Law Courts

The Kelowna Law Courts were evacuated on Thursday afternoon after the fire alarm was pulled.

Firefighters quickly arrived on scene to investigate reports of smoke coming from the building.

After a full search of the premises, emergency personnel were unable to find any smoke.

What they did find was steam coming from a vent on the back side of the building, which is believed to be the source of the false alarm.

People were allowed back inside shortly after 3PM.
