KU’s Malott Hall reopens after evacuation for report of possible chemical leak

November 14, 2012


Malott Hall on the Kansas University campus was evacuated for concerns of a possible chemical leak at 5:41 p.m. Wednesday after a skunk-like smell was reported on the fourth and fifth floors.

Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical, KU Public Safety, KU Environment, Health and Safety, and hazardous materials crews responded to the call but found no dangerous chemical leak.

“It’s always good that people are willing to call,” KU Police Sgt. James Anguiano said. “It’s better safe than sorry.”

Malott Hall, which houses the chemistry department, was reopened for classes about 6:30 p.m.

Every time I see a fire truck on campus, my first thought is, "Somebody spilled something in Mallott again."

My Gosh, not the famous KU Police again. What an overpaid underworked security business that acts as though they are real police. Not one of thier upper staff such as chief, captains ect ever worked for a real police dept. They wouldnt know what to do in real police matters. Just overpaid with great retirements and nothin to do all day except sit in thier office and crap on thier employees while harassing the public. Ks tax payers wake up.....quit wasting your money and let Lawrence pd handle the few calls on campus.....would save you all millions in tax dollars.....
