However, as emergency crews continue to handle the situation, the public is being asked to avoid using Saskatchewan Drive as the road has been closed from Montreal Street to Ottawa Street.

This means both the eastbound and westbound lanes have been shut down until further notice.

Both drivers and pedestrians are asked to choose another route.

More details will be provided by emergency crews as they become available.
