Fox at Five: Mustang's smelly sewage problem

Fox at Five: Mustang's smelly sewage problem

Posted: Updated:
What if your backyard smelled like sewage? Your days outside would likely be limited and the property of your home and land would drop.

That's the complaint from a neighborhood in Mustang. Near the center of town, where the city's wastewater plant is located, the smell is becoming unbearable.

Tonight on the Primetime News at Nine, what's causing the smelly problem? How is the city working to fix it? And how much it could cost Mustang.



Some rain is possible tonight into early Tuesday morning, but it won't be a widespread, soaking rain. And if you're sick of the heat, Tuesday will cure that!

Tuesday will be cool but mostly dry with temps in the lower 80s. Wednesday and Thursday will be even cooler! We won't make it out of the 70s for the middle of the week but those two days could be wet.



Investigators are trying to figure out the cause of a Monday morning fire in downtown OKC.

The fire broke out at a house near NW 2nd and Villa a little before 4 a.m. Firefighters say no one was inside the home at the time and a passerby called in the blaze.

About 25 to 30 firefighters responded to the house fire and now investigators are trying to figure out what sparked it but they did say a power line fell because of the fire.

Firefighters say the home, worth about $19K, is considered a total loss.

Records indicate someone is renting the home, but they were not home at the time. Authorities are currently trying to contact the renter.

A fire official tells FOX 25 that the fire caused a power line to fall into the house, but say power to other homes was not affected.
