AMY PETERSON:JUST A VERY PUNGENT ODOR.
JUST LIKE WHAT THEY SAY THEY PUT IN THE
NATURAL GAS SO THAT YOU SMELL IT IF
THERE IS A LEAK. I HAD SMELLED IT
BEFORE SO I KNEW IT WAS A GAS SMELL,
BUT DIDN'T KNOW WHERE IT WAS COMING
FROM.

BUTT BUTT BUTT

TODD BAUMGARDNER:IT'S KIND OF A ROTENY
EGG SMELL. IT'S KIND OF A PUNGENT SMELL
AND IT'S SOMETHING YOU REMEMBER IF YOU
HAVE SMELLED IT ONCE.

The smell near Virginia Western
was easily recognized by fire crews and
residents as natural gas.

But where was the leak?

The gas company reported no drop
in pressure, and emergency crews
couldn't find a busted line.

That's because there wasn't one.


The foul smell was Mercaptan, the
odorant that is added to natural gas to
give it a smell.

JOE COYLE:I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT
MERCAPTAN IS SO STRONG THAT IF YOU JUST
HAD A RAG THAT WAS DIPPED IN IT AND YOU
SET IT IN THIS PARKING LOT YOU WOULD BE
ABLE TO SMELL IT IN THIS WHOLE AREA, SO
IT IS A VERY STRONG, VERY POTENT
SUBSTANCE.

Crews tracked down the smell to
the Cycle Systems Recycling facility.

Officials say a container that
held mercaptan was crushed during
recycling.

JEREMY BUTTERFIELD:THE GOOD NEWS IS
THAT MERCAPTAN IS A NON-LETHAL,
NON-TOXIC GAS AND POSES NO THREAT TO
RESIDENTS.

THE BAD NEWS IS, THAT ROTTEN EGG
SMELL GOT INSIDE SOME OF THE HOMES NEAR
THE RECYCLING PLANT. JEREMY
