Rotting fruit causes library evacuation

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An Australian university library was evacuated after a rotting fruit was mistaken for a gas leak.

Firefighters arrived at the campus of RMIT in Melbourne's CBD around 3pm on Saturday after receiving a call about a suspected gas leak. As a precautionary measure, police evacuated approximately 500 students and teachers.

In a statement entitled "Rotten afternoon on campus", the Metropolitan Fire Brigade described how it conducted a "comprehensive search," eventually discovering the smell was not a chemical gas but rather the gas emitted from a rotting durian fruit.
