UPDATE: The Beaverlodge Fire Department says their initial investigation determined the electrical smell was coming from within the HVAC system, but there was no danger. A technician has been called to fix the problem.
Classes at Beaverlodge Elementary School are back to normal after an evacuation Wednesday afternoon. Peace Wapiti Public School Division says an odour was detected in the building around 12:30 p.m. and all staff and students were moved to Beaverlodge Regional High School.
The fire department checked the building and declared it safe to return by 1:15 p.m. Everyone has since returned safely.
