Charleston (SC) Fire Station Reopens After Mysterious Odor Causes Concern

A historic downtown Charleston fire station has reopened two weeks after firefighters reported a mysterious odor in the building, reports Post and Courier.

Officials concluded an air quality survey that tested five gases sampled. No detectable amounts of the gases were identified, so firefighters will resume using the station.

When the department’s hazardous materials team initially conducted testing, their monitors showed elevated levels of hydrogen sulfide, a flammable and toxic gas known for its potent rotten egg smell.
