Folks smelled a strong odor: and feared the worst. But it turns out there was not a gas leak in Fairplain Sunday morning.

It started near the Go-Mart just off Interstate 77. Dispatchers say the Interstate and Route 21 were closed as the gas company, fire fighters and the Fire Marshal investigated.

But it turns out: it was not a gas leak and the odor was not dangerous. The roads are back open.

At this point: crews are not sure what caused the smell.
