Axe Body Spray Fumes Cause Emergency Evacuation of Church and Daycare

Mar 22, 2016

A faulty can of Axe Body Spray was responsible for the evacuation of a Seattle church and daycare center on Friday after it began emitting "cough-inducing fumes."

A backpack containing the leaking can was found in a bathroom in the church, prompting a 911 call about the offending bag and the clearing of both buildings, reports MyNorthwest.com. When the fire department arrived on the scene, they decided to call in a hazmat team to investigate the source of the fumes. Luckily, the team soon discovered that the "suspicious item" was only the malfunctioning — and "non-hazardous" — spray.
