Dawson --  Federal authorities are in Dawson to help with the clean up of hazardous material found last week in two buildings in Dawson and Terrell County.  

The Georgia Environmental Protection Division got the Environmental Protection Agency involved after being called to the former Circle Environmental location on Fifth Avenue in Dawson Thursday.

Concerned citizens called police over an odd smell coming from 55 gallon drums being clearing from the building. The drums contained rags and a believed paint solvent that may be an environmental concern.

The EPA will be involved in the clean up because a vitamin manufacturer was expected to go into the location.
