Odor in a Hotel

During a very busy day of EMS calls, Tower 1 and Engine 45 (Franklin Fire Co) responded to the Tru by Hilton for a reported odor of gas in the building. Engine 1-1 cleared from an EMS call and also responded. Units arrived and investigated the area for the odor. Crews located the odor from a discarded baby diaper in a trash can. Command 1 (Chief Ulrich) placed all units in service after 20 minutes.
