UPDATE: Haz Mat team responds to incident at abandoned day care facility

Haz Mat teams responded to 911 call about an unknown odor or gas leak at an abandoned Daycare facility that sits at 30th and Adams Street SW today about 5:10pm.

The building, whose roof is visible from Avalon Way was used as Avalon Daycare until about five years ago according to neighbors. Prior to that it was a church.

According to SFD Spokesperson Kyle Moore said, "It was the smell of chemicals or gas but we put up air monitoring and nothings coming out. We circled the whole place and will make entry. This won't be a quick one."

After thoroughly investigating the source, SFD's Moore said they "did not find any evidence of a hazard."
