UPDATE: Possible gas leak at Jumpin' Jacks actually chicken blood!
UPDATE: Although a host of Butler County emergency personnel responded to Jumpin' Jacks earlier tonight regarding a possible gas leak, the smell was eventually traced to a tractor-trailer parked behind the store that was hauling chicken blood. This determination was made only after the area had be evacuated fearing a gas leak. The scene has been cleared and Jumpin' Jacks is now open.
