Concern over odour prompts investigation

by Sylene Argent

On Saturday evening, Essex Fire & Rescue responded to a call regarding an egg-like smell detected in Essex Centre.

  The worry about the odour was that it perhaps could have been a gas leak. So, Essex Fire & Rescue responded, as did Union Gas.

  Essex Fire Chief Rick Arnel noted the firefighters who responded to the call of the representatives of Union Gas were unable to find any issues. It was discovered that the smell was likely coming from a mushroom farm in Kingsville.

  Arnel said it was likely that the breeze Saturday night was strong enough to carry the odour from Kingsville, which Essex Centre residents are not used to.
