HAMPTON, Va. — Tuesday morning, the Hampton Fire Division started investigating a possible hazardous material situation at an apartment complex near the 1900 block of East Pembroke Avenue.
Around 8:30 a.m., Fire Chief Anthony Chittum said officials were evacuating the apartment complex, and there didn't seem to be any hazardous material on the ground.
A little more than two hours later, the Hampton Division of Fire and Rescue put out a tweet saying nothing was found.
Crews were first called to the street around 8:20 a.m. to look into what might have been causing an unknown smell in the area.
They looked around for a couple of hours, but didn't find the cause. Businesses were deemed safe and residents were allowed to go back inside their homes.
