Sewer gas infiltrates bank

St. PETERSBURG — The stink inside Chase Bank at 785 Fourth St. N was so bad Thursday morning that employees feared a ruptured gas line. Around 9:30, they called the fire department.

But all natural gas and propane lines were intact, said St. Petersburg Fire and Rescue spokesman Lt. Joel Granata. The stench was backed-up sewer gas, he said. Bank tellers have dealt with the smell for a while.

"It's kind of like methane and kind of garbagey," Granata said.
