Gas odor in Tyler caused by trucks hauling tanks from scrap yard

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A mysterious gas odor on the south side of Tyler has been resolved.

The odor was reported from the area of Paluxy and the S. Loop all the way down to South Town and Broadway.

A spokesperson for Centerpoint Energy says one of the company's pipeline suppliers was hauling an odorant tank through town towards the Houston area.

As natural gas has no odor, an odorant is added to it to make it noticeable by humans.

The company spokesperson says no natural gas was actually hauled through the city, just a tank with the odorant in it.
