Family of five sent to hospital as a precaution after smoke filled apartment.
(Owen Sound) -
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.
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."
Again, the refugee family was sent to hospital as a precaution.
