SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The State Franchise Tax Board building in Sacramento was evacuated due to a “flammable gas” smell that turned out to be a dead, rotting rodent, according to Sac Metro fire fighters.
Fire fighters originally labeled the situation as hazmat level 2 as a precaution after employees complained of being sickened by the smell.
It turns out the smell was coming from a dead, rotting rodent stuck inside a soda machine.
The building, located near Butterfield Way and Folsom Boulevard, has 1 million square feet of office and warehouse space.
