SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Officials are trying to determine what is causing a smell of rotten eggs in the San Francisco Bay Area this week.

KNTV reports (https://bit.ly/2ixtNyv ) the Bay Area Air Quality Management District says that crews are focusing on ships, landfills, wastewater treatment plants and two flaring episodes at the Chevron Richmond refinery as potential culprits.

Monitoring devices at the Chevron facility revealed that sulfur was released on Tuesday at some point during the initial flaring episode. Officials are still compiling data about a second flaring episode. No injuries have been reported.
