A frightening situation for a refugee family in Owen Sound.
The City's fire department tells Bayshore Broadcasting News five people were sent to hospital on Tuesday as a precaution after a kitchen mishap.
Firefighters and Grey County EMS arrived on-scene at the Ryerson Apartment building along 5th Avenue East near the 8th Street East Hill at about 10 AM.
Emergency personnel say a stove-top pot had boiled and smoldered while french fries were being cooked, filling the apartment with smoke -- but there wasn't an actual fire to extinguish.
Via Twitter, @GreyParamedics said "5 patients transported. Paramedics clear scene."
