Aquatic Center evacuated on reports of natural gas leak

F.T. Norton

Reports of the odor of natural gas prompted Carson City Fire Department officials to evacuate the Aquatic and Community centers at the corner of Roop and William streets just after 6:30 p.m.

Moments before that call, the fire department was called to the Department of Motor Vehicles on Wright Way also for a gas leak. That one was deemed unfounded.

Sheriff Ken Furlong said dispatchers are getting reports of a “rolling odor of gas” from Koontz Street to William Street on the east side of Highway 395.

As of 7:12 p.m. nothing has been found, he said.
