Hawthorn apartment block evacuated due to mystery smell
Fire crews admit they have no idea what caused the smell at a Hawthorn apartment complex that prompted a mass evacuation.
Hundreds of residents were forced out onto the street on Monday night due to the smell.
The MFB was initially called to the apartment complex near Swinburne University around 8pm.
But after an extensive search, the area was deemed safe and residents allowed to return.
