Officials went inside to check out the scene, using a combustible gas detector around the gas stove and water heater, MFD reported, finding no gas leaks. An Atmos Energy worker was requested to the scene for assistance.

MFD along with the gas company worker determined the odor was “most likely” due to a skunk.
