Mississauga Costco evacuated due to noxious fumes

A Costco store in Mississauga has been evacuated because of noxious fumes.

Just after 8 a.m. Thursday, crews cleared the building on Laird Road, near Dundas Street West and Winston Churchill Boulevard, and found the source to be a chlorine puck in the garbage compactor.

There are reports a man may have inhaled the fumes, but it’s not known if he needed treatment in hospital.

The hazardous-materials unit is on the scene.
