Odor Forces Office Evacuation



    Odor Forces Office Evacuation
    Workers were forced out of their Norristown offices on July 23, 2013.

    A noxious odor sickened workers at an area office building today.

    The odor caused the evacuation of the Montgomery Professional Building at Powell and Wood Streets in Norristown, Pa. around noon Tuesday.

    Dispatchers said that a handful of people were walking wounded but only two were taken to the hospital with non-serious injuries.

    As SkyForce10 hovered overheard works could be seen gathered outside the building.

    Contractors working in the five-story building caused the odor but it isn't certain what set it off, dispatchers said.

    Story will be updated.
