Hays Post – April 19, 2017

Two downtown Hays buildings were evacuated at about 3 p.m. today after the smell of smoke was reported.

The 100 block of West 13th St was closed and buildings at 105 W. 13th St., which houses First Care Clinic, and 107 W. 13th, which houses Bieker Insurance and CASA, were temporarily evacuated while firefighters searched the buildings.

As of about 3:40 p.m. the source of the smoke smell had not been found, said Lt. B. Wright of the Hays Police Department. Both buildings were cleared about 20 minutes later.

No injures were reported.
