What started as occasional phone calls complaining about a "gas odor" in and around the City of Kuna earlier this week has escalated into a full investigation into the issue from Intermountain Gas, the Ada County Sheriff's Office, and the Kuna police and fire departments. By Tuesday afternoon, Intermountain Gas had logged over 100 calls from concerned citizens and Kuna officials said they heard from approximately 300 community members.

Intermountain Gas said its initial probe didn't reveal any breaches or leaks in its system in southern Ada County, and no natural gas leaks have been found at regulator stations.

Kuna officials said late Tuesday that the number of calls regarding the odor had gone down, and there had been no reported illnesses or injuries as a result of the odor.

"At this time, we don not believe that odor is hazardous in nature," read an official statement from the City of Kuna Fire Department.

Meanwhile, anyone who smells gas in or around their residence is still encouraged to contact Intermountain Gas at 1-800-548-3679.
