Gas odor reported at NCSU dining hall

Posted January 4, 2011

— North Carolina State University police responded to a strong gas odor at a dining hall on campus on Tuesday.

Police said a man working on the elevator in Clark Dining Hall, 221 Jensen Drive in Raleigh, noticed a strong gas smell near the kitchen and alerted authorities around 6 p.m.

University police said the odor was caused by a problem with a gas stove in the dining hall.

The problem was resolved by 8 p.m. 

The dining hall was empty because students are still out on winter break.
