The rotting Durian was found in a library cabinet

More than 500 students and teachers were evacuated from a university in Melbourne, Australia, for an odor originally thought to be gas.

But it turned out that students in a Royal Melbourne Institute "smell" of Technology Library was a rotting Durian that was found in a closet.

Durian is a tropical fruit known for its strong, stinking odor.

Firefighters said that the smell had wandered through the building via the air conditioner

The building was now reopened, it said in a statement by the Melbourne Metropolitan Fire Department.

"Turpentine and Onions"

After employees and university students reported a smell in a library building, they were evacuated by the local police

The fire department said that the building stores potentially hazardous chemicals, resulting in an investigation the source of the odor triggers.

According to what the fire brigade called "comprehensive search" h, they discovered that the smell was not a chemical gas, but that it came from a durian that went off.

Durians are a cherished fruit in Southeast Asia with a sweet and creamy flesh, but their smell may take some getting used to

The Smithsonian magazine described it as "turpentine and onions garnished with a tournament sock"
