Smelly refrigerator causes evacuation
LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY- A smelly refrigerator at the University of Kentucky sent nearly a dozen people to the hospital after they complained of irritation to their skin and eyes and some nausea.
The fridge was moved to the Dimock Animal Pathology building overnight from another campus building. When employees came to work and opened the refrigerator, they say they were met with an overpowering smell.
Eleven people went to the hospital and the building was evacuated as a precaution. University leaders say they believe the smell came from a chemical residue left by something that had been inside the refrigerator.
The building was reopened the next day.
