LEBO, Kan. (AP) State health officials have been investigating a strong scent of gasoline in a southeast Kansas town.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment says it’s trying to determine the cause of the odor in Lebo. Coffey County emergency departments have also been working on finding the cause of the odor.
KDHE says the odor is not a health hazard.
The smell was reported Jan. 26 by Lebo’s city superintendent. KDHE says the department planned to cap an old sewer line that could be the pathway for the odor to get into buildings.
The agency says crews have also been working to find the source of the odor.
