CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Residents of a Cape Girardeau apartment building were allowed back into their homes after being evacuated on Thursday.

Police say they started getting calls Thursday morning after several people at the apartment at 45 South West End Blvd. reported they were having trouble breathing and needed medical care.

Police evacuated all five stories of the apartment. Several people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A portion of the southbound West End Blvd. was closed but is back open to traffic.

At this point, they don't know the cause. However, a pest control company was spraying Thursday morning.
