NJ medical complex reopens after noxious odor

MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A medical complex in northern New Jersey has reopened after a noxious odor forced an evacuation.

An odor similar to pepper spray was detected in one of the doctors’ offices at the Medical Center on James Street in Morris Township Tuesday.

Morris County Emergency Management director Jeff Paul tells The Daily Record of Parsippany (http://dailyre.co/15VzuHs ) two patients with respiratory problems were taken to a hospital and two others were given oxygen on the scene.

Officials allowed the building to reopen five hours later.

There’s no word what caused the odor.
