The Tri-State Fire Protection District and the Willowbrook Police
Department are investigating a gasoline smell in the Knolls Condominium Complex
and nearby areas. The source of the smell appears to be related to the sanitary
sewers. DuPage County Office of Emergency Management and the Flag Creek Sanitary
District are also investigating the source of the gasoline smell. Media staging
area will be near 140 Lincoln Oaks Drive. Any questions or
concerns can be directed to Chief Pavelchik at firstname.lastname@example.org
along 63rd Street between Cass Avenue, Westmont, and Kingery Highway,
Willowbrook, are most at risk.
All property owners in that area should check for a petroleum type smell,
which smells like acetone,
kerosene, or gasoline, in
the lowest level of the structure. If a smell is present call 9-1-1.
If it is unknown whether or not a smell is present, as a precaution,
property owners may open up the windows on their lowest floor level to ventilate
and turn off their furnace, hot-water-heater*, and do not use the clothes dryer
(or any other source of combustion), until it can be confirmed that there is no
build-up of fumes. As time passes, and the catch basin ventilation process
continues, the fumes should sufficiently dissipate.
