Australian university evacuated over 'gas leak'

RMIT Forced To Evacuate After Gas Leak Australian university evacuated over 'gas leak'

Note that the durian is the fruit, possessing a peculiar smell.

The fears of a gas leak at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia were, fortunately, very anti-climatic.

Firefighters donned protective breathing apparatus to investigate the source of the stench, taking severe precautions as the campus sometimes stored risky chemicals.

In 2014, patients and staff from a Melbourne hospital were evacuated amid concerns there was a gas leak at one of the wards.

Rotting durian fruit caused a gas leak scare at an Australian university library, prompting an evacuation of the building.

A fire brigade spokesperson told the Sun that the odorous Southeast Asian fruit set off alarms after it filtered through the air conditioning. But it turned out the smell was from a pungent durian.

The epic stench at Melbourne's RMIT library was caused by a rotten durian which had been left in a cupboard.

Even when it's ripe durian is considered the smelliest fruit in the world, leading to it being banned from places like planes and trains.

A food writer, Richard Sterling, said the fruit is "best described as ... turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock", according to Smithsonian magazine.

Firefighters said the smell had moved through the building via the air-conditioning system.

The Age reported that the Environmental Protection Agency will oversee storage of the waste.
