Foul odor forces Union Station evacuation
Union Station was evacuated for more than an hour on Sunday afternoon while officials searched for the source of gas smells in the station.
The odor was first reported about 1:40 p.m. on Sunday, according to the station’s security office. All shops and the Amtrak station were closed and occupants were ushered out.
An all-clear was issued about 3 p.m., and the station reopened, said a dispatcher for the station’s security office. It was not immediately known what caused the smell, she said.
Amtrak officials did not immediately respond to a request for information about the incident.
