A gas smell at downtown businesses Monday led to some short evacuations. The Christian County Public Library was among the businesses evacuated.

The smell seemed to be coming from the sewer system.

Hopkinsville Fire Department confirmed that the smell was not natural gas but could not confirm what it was. Hopkinsville Water Environment Authority was on scene to clean up the sewer system.

No one was injured and the reason for the smell has not been determined.
