A diner at Arby’s Restaurant alerted management to an odd odor yesterday afternoon that wasn’t coming from its signature sandwiches.

Neshannock Township’s fire department responded to the call, initially described as something electrical burning and then as smoke coming from a vent.

No fire was found.

The problem appeared to be related to the heating and cooling units or a hose from one of the hoods by a stove said deputy fire chief Brian Melcer.

“We’re checking it out,” Melcer said, but “it’s not a major thing.”

Firefighters used an aluminum ladder to access the roof to examine the heating and cooling duct work.                                                         

Melcer said Arby’s also contacted its heating and cooling system technician.

Melcer said a customer inside the restaurant alerted the personnel of the burning odor. The fire call came in shortly before 2:30 p.m.
