Gas smell from Furnace Vent


What would be the primary cause for detected gas from the furnace vent outside? Possible a faulty gass valve or something?

Need to call your fire department to find out if there is an explosion danger first by testing the atmosphere, and two call a HVAC tech to inspect the system and correct before it gets turned back on, since would be tagged out by the fire department, and gas locked out by your utility until appliances are inspected.
