An unknown strong odor is causing concern throughout many communities in the South Hills and Mon Valley. The Jefferson Hills fire chief said it’s a big mystery. Every day in the past week or so, the chief said many people have called his department, complaining they smell gas in the evenings or early mornings. Danielle Yerkey has smelled it too. “It’s very concerning. We don’t want to be breathing the gas and we have animals and kids. It’s a really nice community,” Yerkey said. The fire chief said this is a widespread issue. “We are receiving calls in Jefferson Hills. I know Glassport, West Mifflin, Pleasant Hills, Clairton, all those local fire departments have been chasing the same odor as we have,” Jefferson Hills Fire Chief Brian Chalfant said. So far, the chief said they have not been able to determine the cause of the smell and no gas has been detected.
