SALISBURY, Md.- Several residents of the Parkwood Apartments complex in Salisbury were evacuated from their homes late Sunday night due to a Hazmat situation.  

At around 11 p.m., fire crews equipped with Hazmat gear responded to the complex on Beaglin Park Drive. Maryland State Police were also on the scene.  

Residents were allowed to reenter their homes around 2 a.m., but not before standing out in the cold for several hours. People living in the building that was evacuated say they were caught by surprise.

"I was taking a shower and all of a sudden all the power went out," said apartment resident Wanda Gravenor. " So I grabbed a robe, stuck my head out in the hallway and a firefighter asked me to evacuate the building."

Police said they are waiting on crews from Baltimore to arrive so they can enter an apartment at the complex, where they expect to find a meth lab. No arrests have been made yet, according to police.
