The DeKalb County Public Safety Building has reopened after an unknown odor prompted officials to evacuate the building.
A hazmat unit was called to the scene in the 3600 block of Camp Circle about 9:30 a.m. after receiving a report about the odor, according to DeKalb fire.
The building houses multiple courtrooms.
At one point, officials thought the odor may have been the result of a freon leak from an air-conditioning unit, police Lt. Lonzy Robertson said.
However, DeKalb fire Capt. Eric Jackson said officials “didn’t find anything.”
Employees returned to the building about 10:45 a.m., Jackson said.
