Pungent smell in Scenic City does not pose health risk, per CFD
Firefighters were called to investigate a strong odor that could be smelled throughout parts of the Scenic City.
"During that investigation, a representative with Akzo Nobel Surface Chemistry at 909 Mueller Avenue told firefighters that they had an accidental spill of approximately two gallons of ethyl acrylate," a Chattanooga Fire Department spokesperson explained.
The company says the spill has been cleaned up, but the smell could stick around for several hours.
CFD monitored the air throughout the city and said it does not pose a health threat to the public.
The Hamilton County Air Pollution Control Bureau is investigating.
