Odor in a Business

Just before 5 PM a phone call to the station prompted a response for an odor inside a business in the 100 block of South Second St. Chambersburg units arrived and investigated an odor of something burning inside the office area. Crews located a burnt light ballast as the source of the odor. Tower 1 ventilated and crews turned the building back over to the business. Company 1 units operated for over 30 minutes before clearing the scene.
