fairfi - CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Duke Energy says an smell of gas that residents have been noticing on the north and northwest parts of town isn't coming from them, but could be coming from a truck.
The smell was so strong, it led to a closing if the Lane Public Library's Fairfield Branch for about an hour and a half.
The smell was noticed early Monday afternoon in Spring Grove Village, Finneytown, North College Hill, Greenhills, Forest Park, and Fairfield.
Duke says that if a gas line were leaking, the odor wouldn't be spread all over town, but a truck emitting the same type of smell could easily cover that area.
The odor of natural gas is not from the gas, but from a chemical that is added to the gas so people can detect it in their homes. A different odor is added to gasoline, which otherwise wouldn't smell very strong.
