ALAMOSA — Adams State University will contract with a professional decontamination crew to clean an area of Porter Hall that was inundated with a strong chemical odor Monday morning, according to Adams State Chief of Police Dr. Joel Shults. Porter Hall houses Adams State’s science, mathematics, and engineering programs.

The chemical substance has not yet been identified, but an investigation is continuing, Shults said. Responders were on the scene until shortly before 11 a.m., when the area was taped off with warning signs.
