Stores were evacuated. Vernon Fire attended.

Fortunately there was no fire.

As things returned to normal, businesses reopened, with one exception.

The doors to the Galaxy Theatre were open but patrons tell ExNews staff is not immediately resuming normal operations, disappointing news for those hoping to catch an afternoon show.
