Mysterious odor in San Luis Obispo seems to have dissipated

There are questions still lingering about a gas-like smell that was reported in southern San Luis Obispo Wednesday morning.

The San Luis Obispo City Fire Department says it began receiving emergency calls about the smell at 8:30a.m. Residents were reporting the stench in the area of Los Osos Valley Rd., South Higuera St. and Tank Farm Rd. The odor dissipated soon after, but then grew stronger once again. An Emergency Operations Center was set up at 10:00a.m. for several agencies to gather and troubleshoot on the cause of the odor.

As of about 12:45p.m. Wednesday, the city says the odor has dissipated and no more emergency calls have been received. Investigators aren't sure what caused the smell, but they say there are no indications that it's dangerous.
