Gas Odor Draws Larchmont Fire Department

LARCHMONT, N.Y. - Two fire engines blocked traffic in Larchmont's business district Tuesday evening after the owner of the Corner Store reported a gas odor coming from the traffic signal box outside of his store.

The Larchmont Fire Department responded around 6 p.m. and checked the storm drains and basements along Palmer and Chatsworth Avenues to make sure the smell wasn't coming from inside the building. Lieutenant Tony Martyn and his firefighters found no odor.

"More than likely, it's something to do with the traffic signal box," said Martyn, who noticed a definite odor coming from the box.

They didn't have the key to the box and had to wait for Con Edison to inspect the area and open the box.

Larchmont Mayor Joshua Mendell was also on hand as a volunteer for the fire department. He said complaints like this are often false alarms.

Did you notice a strong gas smell near the corner of Palmer Avenue and Chatsworth Avenue Tuesday?
