(POCATELLO, ID) – A building in Old Town Pocatello had to be evacuated yet again on Tuesday.  The building along North Main and Wyeth streets houses the Muse clothing boutique and several apartments. Crews cleared the building because a strong odor of methane gas was present. A previous evacuation order was in place last Friday and Saturday for the same problem. Officials believe the toxic smell is coming from under the street, and firefighters are trying to locate and eliminate it. None of the building’s occupants have been hospitalized
