Cabell dispatchers: Gas-like odor harmless

Nov. 18, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Something is in the air in Huntington, but it isn't anything to be alarmed about according to Cabell County 911 dispatchers.

Dispatchers said they have received countless calls about a natural gas-like smell wafting through the city since early Friday. The smell is particularly noticeable along 3rd Avenue.

The source of the smell is cleaning agents used by West Virginia Steel as the business cleans out its ponds. Dispatchers said while the smell is "unpleasant, it isn't anything harmful."
