LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – A sewer gas issue in MLK Hall led to students being evacuated Monday morning. At about 10 a.m. – on the first day of classes – an emergency alarm rang throughout the building, forcing students and staff out of the building.
Jefferson City Fire and LUPD responded to the scene. At about 10:40 a.m., an all-clear signal was given. Emergency crews said the stinky odor was likely a sewer issue. By 11 a.m., the building was smelling a little better.
