LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - The Laredo Fire Department is advising residents about the cause of a foul odor in the Mines Road area.

According to the fire department’s Facebook page, on saturday, August 13, 2022, the odor is due to an oil company that has propane tanks about 2 to 300 yards behind the Green Ranch subdivision.

The tanks have relief valves that release built-up vapors.

The gas is heavier than air.

Due to the high humidity in the air, the fire department says the gas odor will last longer.

There is no danger to the community and the smell will dissipate.
