Don't forget batteries (talking large batteries here) can give off a really nasty rotten egg smell and usually means stay away unless you want to get
covered in acid. That's assuming the battery hasn't already blown yet.
This happened in my community over the summer; the whole neighborhood was outside asking one another if anyone knew what it could be. A few of us
called the gas company. Turned out it was a gas leak; they were all set up to do repairs on the line and had to vent some of the gas before they could
start -- amazing that it never occurred to them to notify the community ahead of time.
