WBFO News file photo

Reports of a strange odor at an Amherst address have opened a legal investigation. National Fuel crews were called to a Le Brun Circle address Saturday afternoon for a possible gas leak. A search unveiled a quantity of potentially hazardous chemicals in a detached garage. A local hazmat team along with a New York State Emergency Response team and Drug Enforcement Agency officials responded to the scene.

The chemicals were removed, and the investigation is continuing.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
