Suspicious smell leads to evacuation

The Sheltered Workshop was evacuated Wednesday morning.

Some local workers got a bit of an early morning scare.

Shortly after 9:00 Wednesday morning, someone smelled an odor inside the Sheltered Workshop on the 1000 block of South Osteopathy in Kirksville.

The Kirksville Fire Department was called and the building was evacuated. Officials didnâ??t find anything wrong and workers were allowed to reenter the building around 10:00 a.m.

The Sheltered Workshop employs about 50 people with disabilities. They assemble medical parts, detail cars and collect recyclables.
