Members of the Bomb Squad dismantled a suspicious device found in a vehicle on Markham Road Monday, ending a lengthy evacuation that affected thousands of people.
Police, fire, and a HAZMAT team rushed to the scene of a towing yard at 2671 Markham Rd., just north of Finch following the discovery of a cube van containing suspicious and possibly explosive substances.
An area of about 1.6 squared kilometres, bordered by Steeles, Finch, Middlefield and Morningside, was evacuated after reports that the van was in close proximity to a large propane tank at Williams Towing Service Ltd.
