We recently started smelling a "rotten egg" like smell coming from the bottom of our hall closet. The house has no propane in it! It seems to be coming just from the area of the 3rd shelf.

Could be escaping sewer gas from a cracked sewer or vent pipe.

Does your sewer stack run in the vicinity either in the wall or under the floor?

Would be the first thing to check.

Occasionally, in this extremely cold weather, a roof soil stack vent will clog with frost and the methane needs to find another way to vent itself.
