JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Clandestine Lab Team, Bomb Squad and Hazmat team found nothing after investigating a home in the 3600 block of Frances Avenue on Thursday night.

Around 6:50 p.m. Thursday, the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department received reports of an unusual odor in the 3600 block of Frances Avenue, according to JSO Sgt. Richard Knecht.

Residents of Frances Avenue were voluntarily evacuated from their homes after coming outside on their own. Those residents were questioned by police about what could be inside the house.

Bomb Squad and Narcotics officers went into the home late Thursday night and found nothing, Knecht said.

Several roads in the area were blocked off and residents other than next door neighbors were told to stay inside until police determine what they are dealing with.

Police were clearing the scene around 12:30 a.m. Friday. Knecht said the odor has now dissipated.
