 CALLOWAY Co, Ky - There have been several reports of a gas-like smell across the area.

The Sheriff's office has confirmed with Local 6 that the gas smell is not dangerous.

Though the smell resembles that of natural gas, the natural gas providers in the area have confirmed that there is no gas leak.

Authorities have not been able to pinpoint one source of the smell.

The stink has a general overarching range over several counties including Calloway, Graves, and Ballard.

Many authorities believe that the smell could be originating from the paper mill in Wickliffe, although this is still speculation.
