They smelled a rat. Quite a few, in fact.

Firefighters have temporarily moved out of Station 37 in Riverside South after the discovery of as many as 30 rats, which exterminators believe have gotten into the walls.

Firefighters hoped to be back in the station on Earl Armstrong Road by Sunday night or Monday morning, Ottawa Fire Services Deputy Chief Kim Ayotte said.
