Drain valve causes reports of natural gas leak in Pancoe

University Police responded to reports of a smell of natural gas emitting from a classroom in the Pancoe-Evanston Northwestern Healthcare Life Sciences Pavilion, 2200 Campus Drive , Tuesday evening, University Police Deputy Chief Dan McAleer said.

The Evanston fire department and Facilities Management determined a leaky drain valve caused the smell in classroom 4327.

Authorities determined the threat to be unfounded, as the valve was not leaking natural gas, McAleer said.
