An emergency call was placed in the early hours of the morning on Tuesday, Feb. 12, which led Fresno City College students to evacuate the math and science building.

“Apparently there was some smell of exhaust,” Kathy Bonilla, Public Information Officer, said.

The cause of the evacuation was due to the grounds department, which at the time was servicing campus nearby. Fumes from mowing machines were thought to have entered through the southwest portion of the math and science building’s ventilation system.

According to Nancy Gross, an administrative aide, two faculty members placed the call and the event lasted approximately 20 minutes. The names of said individuals were not offered to The Rampage.

“I toured the labs, [and] there’s nothing up there that we can tell,” Seth Yates, chemistry professor said.

Professors and students in labs did not detect any strange odors present at the time of the evacuation.

An emergency announcement was heard via classroom telephone speakers, email, and a text message was also sent to those who have opted into the emergency text service with FCC.
