There were some anxious moments for a number of seniors evacuated from their homes last night in Merritt.

Residents of Trade Winds Terrace, the 28-unit seniors’ supportive housing complex at 2151 Granite Avenue, were evacuated at about 8:30 after smoke was reported from a fire in a duct in the attic on the east side of the building.

Quick action by the Merritt Fire Rescue Department had the fire extinguished and residents were allowed to return to the building a short time later.
