OKLAHOMA CITY -

A strange odor at an apartment complex near S.E. 44th Street and Sunnylane in Oklahoma City led to a hazmat situation early Tuesday morning.

Around 4 a.m., residents became concerned when a powerful smell began drifting through Raleigh Square Apartments. Someone called 911, and firefighters and hazmat crews responded to the scene. They evacuated some residents while crews investigated the odor.

Hazmat investigators soon learned a resident had set up a homemade bug bomb in an apartment to get rid of pests, and left the unit. When firefighters entered the apartment, it was filled with a haze and bad smell, but there was no danger.

The homemade bug bomb was thrown away and residents were allowed back into their apartments.
