WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Purdue investigators have not been able to determine what caused seven buildings on campus to evacuated Friday after people thought they smelled natural gas.
Fire Chief Kevin Ply told News 18 Wednesday that Vectren continued to monitor the area Friday evening but could not find a source.
At this point, firefighters believe the odor was picked up by the fresh air intakes of various buildings from a vehicle driving around campus. But that cannot be confirmed.
Ply said most of the buildings that had reports of the smell of gas don't actually have natural gas running to them because the academic buildings run on steam heat.
