Hundreds Evacuate Melbourne Library Over ‘Gas Leak,’ Turns Out to Be Durian

Hundreds of students were forced to evacuate a school library in Australia after people mistook a rotting durian for a gas leak.  

Students reported a smell of gas inside a library in RMIT campus on Latrobe Street in Melbourne just after 3 p.m. on Saturday. Dozens of firefighters immediately arrived and assisted Victoria police in evacuating approximately 500 students and teachers from the library. The evacuation was reportedly done as a security precaution, since the building was known to contain potentially dangerous chemicals.
