HANOVER COUNTY, Va. — The cause of a foul smelling odor in Hanover County remains a mystery.

Hanover Fire and EMS crews received more than 20 calls Saturday night into Sunday morning from residents reporting what was described as smelling like methane gas, garbage or rotten eggs.

Battalion Chief J. T. Williams said the smell was not from a gas leak, but as of Sunday night, the Department of Public Utilities and Virginia Natural Gas have been unable to pinpoint a source.

CBS 6 News has been told the odor has since dissipated.
