MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) – Fuyao Glass Manufacturing was evacuated Wednesday afternoon after employees smelled something foul.

A Fuyao employee says workers reported smelling gasoline. The company evacuated everyone as a precaution then called the fire department.

Fire crews are working to find the source of the odor. Fuyao believes it might be coming from old pipes used in operations of the old General Motors plant that was once housed in the same building.

No one was injured or became ill.

The investigation into an exact cause is now underway.
