RCMP, a hazardous materials team from Edmonton Fire Rescue Services, and the RCMP's Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement and Response Team (CLEAR) were on scene to "clear a residence" on Waverly Drive, RCMP said in a release.

Police were called just after 10 a.m. Friday, Cpl. Laurel Scott said.

The situation was contained to a single home but police were asking people walking in the area to avoid the scene.

Some neighbouring houses in the area were evacuated as a precaution, RCMP said.

CLEAR teams are called to drug-related incidents, but Scott didn't say what kind of drugs were suspected to be at the home.
