PEARL CITY, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Hazardous material crews were called to investigate a chemical odor inside Pearlridge Center on Wednesday afternoon.

The strong odor was first noticed around 2 p.m. when more than a dozen people suddenly reported feeling nauseous.

They were all checked out by paramedics and are OK, according to a spokesman with the Honolulu Fire Department.

The odor was traced back to the roofing material that is being installed near an air conditioning unit at the satellite City Hall inside the mall.
