We report the detection with the ATCA of 6.7 GHz methanol emission towards OMC-1. The source has a size between 40″ and 90″, is located to the south-east of Ori-KL and may coincide in position with the 25 GHz masers. The source may be an example of an interesting case recently predicted in theory where the transitions of traditionally different methanol maser classes show maser activity simultaneously. In addition, results of recent search for methanol masers from the 25 and 104.3 GHz transitions are reported. © Springer 2005 Science + Business Media, Inc.
