Sentinel Career and Technology Center was evacuated temporarily due to an odor Tuesday morning.

At 11 a.m., a fire department was requested for a strange odor in the building at 793 E. TR 201, according to a Seneca County Sheriff’s Office report.

Deputy Denny Wilkinson of Seneca County Sheriff’s Office said it was an odor of sewage. A crew had had a cap off a sewer pipe, and the ventilation system pulled in the odor, he said.

“They were doing some work back there earlier,” he said.

“It was pretty much dissipated by the time we left,” Wilkinson said.

Personnel from Clinton Township Volunteer Fire Department and Tiffin Fire Rescue Division responded.
