Chemical Reaction Sickens Several at Northeast Side Business

More than a dozen people had to  be treated due to a chemical reaction at a northeast side industrial facility, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

The Fire Department says gases released when a person at the facility in the 6900 Block of NE Loop 410  which officials say cleans and refurbishes industrial containers attempted to empty the contents of a tote into a bucket of water.

The symptoms  included tingling skin, headache, and nausea.

Officials say some of the workers were treated at the scene, and others were taken to a nearby Texas Med Clinic for treatment.

The SAFD says the symptoms cleared up after treatment and there was never any danger to the public.
