Red Cross volunteers arranged emergency lodging and meals for five men from one apartment. Some tenants went to stay with relatives or friends until police release the property.

The Truro Police Service said on its Facebook page that they were called to the address just after 2 a.m. on Sunday.

“There is nothing to indicate a risk to the general public at this time,” police wrote.
