Roads near railroad in Paducah reopened after being closed due to smell

Roads near a railroad line near Paducah are back open after being closed Tuesday morning.

Hendron Fire Chief Doug Cooper says earlier in the day they got a call from a driver called saying they smelled what they thought to be hydrochloride near the railroad at Rosewood Drive and Poole Road.

Roads in the area were closed as an investigation into the reported smell began.

That investigation turned up nothing and no leaks were found.

All roads in the area were reopened after the all-clear was given.
