(KSL News) -- For the second time in a week, people are reporting a foul smell in the air. This time it's a "rotten egg" odor in parts of West Jordan.

One resident reported a strong smell in the area of 7800 south and 6800 west near highway 111.

The West Jordan Fire Department checked it out and says the smell is coming from Kennecott. Kennecott is burning sulfur, but authorities say other than the foul smell, it poses no health problems.
