Mysterious gas smell reported in East Pembroke area

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, pembroke.

There have been reports of some mysterious cloud of gas -- or a gas smell -- in the East Pembroke area, according to the dispatch center, but no origin for the smell has been found.

East Pembroke Fire Department was dispatched to locate the source and is back in service.

"They've exhausted all leads," according to a dispather.

Oh yeah? Did anyone check on Kutter's as a possibility?

Ed, this is at least 5 miles east of Kutters. The reported smell was determined to be an onion field rather than natural gas.

Thanks, Destin!
My comment was meant as a 'gag' (and, yes, THAT ALSO was a play on words).

An onion field, huh? See, sometimes reality IS funnier than fiction!

Oh, BTW, Destin - 5 miles is nothin' when your opponent is agouda cheese! And Kutter's is some of the best I've ever had.

There have been several reports in the past of natural gas odor in the Pembroke area. On those occasions the explanation involved a leak associated with the odorant that is added to natural gas to give the distinctive smell. Apparently there is a mixing facility in eastern Erie County. ...Not to say that explains the current report, but it has been cited previously.
