JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Several people were evacuated from the East and West towers this morning at St. Dominic because of a strong smell of natural gas.

Andy North of the St. Dominic Marketing Department says they started smelling the gas in two medical office buildings around 9:15 AM. As a precaution, the buildings were evacuated.

North says the smell was the strongest outside and near the air intake from the room, adding that it appeared to be coming from an outside source off the campus.

No patients were evacuated.

Both Atmos Energy and the Jackson Fire Department are on the scene. Most of the people evacuated have returned to the buildings.
