Following a brief evacuation of three University of Nebraska- Lincoln buildings Monday, emergency crews have re-opened the buildings and normal operations have resumed.
Police and fire officials were called to the Walter Scott Engineering Center around 5 p.m. Monday after receiving reports of a strong sulfur-like odor inside the building. Officials evacuated the Scott building, as well as Nebraska Hall and Othmer Hall so they could conduct floor-by-floor sweeps.
UNL's Environmental Health and Safety department and Lincoln Fire and Rescue ventilated the buildings and searched the area, but were unable to locate the source of the odor.
Officials re-opened the buildings late Monday night and conducted a follow-up sweep Tuesday morning to make sure everything was safe.
No injuries were reported as a result of this incident.
