Fumes Force Evacuation of Bryan Office Building

By  | 

Paint thinner fumes forced the evacuation of a Bryan office building Saturday night.

It happened at the Galleria Village office tower.

Fire crews were called out shortly after 6 p.m.

It's believed the fumes came from the chemical toluene, which is commonly used as a paint thinner.

Authorities initially held off on evacuating the building, but later asked the handful of people inside to come out as a precaution.

No injuries were reported. The source of the paint thinner fumes is not yet known.
