Chemistry Odor Causes Michigan State Evacuation
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) – People have returned to buildings that were briefly evacuated at Michigan State University because of complaints of a strange odor.
Campus police responded to suspicions of a natural gas leak Tuesday morning in East Lansing. But campus police spokeswoman Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor says the smell came from a bottle that broke inside the Chemistry Building and vented outside through a fume hood.
She says the bottle had a substance that would smell the same as a gas leak. She says the odor is non-hazardous.
