Fruit smell sparks mass evacuation of uni library

Fruit smell sparks mass evacuation of uni library”

But as it turns out, the culprit wasn't gas, but rather a very smelly fruit.

More than 500 people were evacuated from the library at the University of Canberra in Australia within minutes on Thursday when the smell of the Southeast Asian fruit wafted through the building, prompting concerns about a potentially unsafe chemical spilling into the air, staff members said in a Facebook post.

Around 550 people evacuated the University of Canberra's library in under 6 minutes on Thursday because of what was believed to be a possible gas leak, according to a Facebook post from the school.

In another Facebook post the library reassured students that "the lingering gas-like smell in the building is completely safe", and revealed that a durian had been left in a bin. The Washington Post's Amy B Wang reported a year ago that hundreds of people were evacuated from the library at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne - over similar fears of chemical gas.

This is the second time the divisive fruit has left a stink in Australia. In April 2018, fire officials in Melbourne warned of a chemical hazard at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and said the smell of gas had been reported.

Singapore has prohibited the fruit in its subway system, and many hotels ban durians because of the notorious smell - which some critics have likened to rotten food or dirty socks.

The University of Canberra Library was evacuated on Friday when a suspicious smell was reported.
