Natural gas odor reported in beach areas

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Dozens of people called 911 and SDG&E Wednesday, reporting a widespread gas odor from Mission Beach to Mission Hills.

Fire officials say the calls started coming in around 3:15 p.m. Some of the responding fire crews were able to smell the odor.

"They said it did smell like the odorant placed in natural gas and apparently SDG&E was doing some work with that, so that may be the cause," San Diego Fire-Rescue Batt. Chief John Fisher said.

SDG&E confirmed they did re-charge the odorant in the natural gas in Ocean Beach Wednesday. The odorant is an added smell to alarm customers of leaks.

According to fire officials, no one reported any sickness or other injuries from the odor.
