Gas smell in Boynton area no cause for concern

BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Residents living in the area between Lantana Road and Boynton Beach Boulevard are reporting the smell of gas in their neighborhoods. 

Florida Public Utilities has informed Fox 29 they have added mercapton odorant to their natural gas lines and that there is no gas leak.

FPU has advised us that they will be adding the odorant in the Boca Raton area next so residents may detect the smell of gas in that area later this afternoon. 

However, FPU wants to assure residents that there is no gas leak.

PBCFR has responded to more than 30 incidents for investigation of the smell of gas.
