The first crew to arrive confirmed the smell coming from manholes in the area of 6th and Pierce. The odor quickly dissipated. As a precaution, about 60 people were evacuated from their homes.

Everyone in that portion of the Little Italy neighborhood, between 5th and 7th Streets, from Hickory to Poppleton, was allowed to return to their homes around 6:15 p.m.

A crew from MUD planned to stay on site for another three hours to finish repairing a small leak outside of one residence.
