UPDATE: 10:20 a.m.: Students will be expected to return to school. Three fire crews were in attendance: Sooke, Otter Point and Shirley (CORRECTED:) Metchosin. They are doing a final sweep to make sure everything is safe, but it is expected that school will resume.
9:42 a.m. If you’re wondering where all the fire trucks are headed just after 9 a.m. on Thursday morning, reports on social media are indicating that there are many trucks at EMCS, the Sooke high school, right now.
Apparently, a smoke smell has been reported in the structure.
Some parents report that their children attending the school say there was some smoke in the vents. A carbon monoxide leak is indicated by another parent.
The school has been evacuated, and from the sounds of it, many fire trucks are in attendance.
It is unlikely that traffic on Sooke Rd. is significantly impacted.
