AMARILLO -- The smell of natural gas filled the air around Amarillo today but it's nothing to be alarmed by.

According to the Amarillo Fire Department and Atmos Energy officials, the smell is blowing in from plants in the Borger area.

They say that the northwest wind brought the smell in and thick cloud cover this morning kept the smell from escaping.

The fire department says they were called out to investigate a number of reports and found no leaks at any of the locations.
