The call came in between 2 and 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 22, and firefighters went to the condo to check on the reported odor. Fire personnel used gas-detecting devices to check for the presence of excess natural gas.

They spent the most time on an upper floor of the 103-unit building, where the original complaint was based. No gas leak was detected and fire trucks began leaving the structure at just after 3 p.m.

The Birmingham condo, located in a converted factory building on the Housatonic River, has a natural gas connection.
