NEENAH — An alleged chemical mixture inside a Neenah plant sent three employees to the hospital and forced the evacuation of workers and some residents living near the facility.
The Neenah-Menasha Fire Rescue received a medical call about noon Wednesday reporting a sick employee at Galloway Co.
Fire chief Kevin Kloehn says hazmat crews have been sent to the scene to investigate whether chlorine was erroneously emptied into a tank filled with acid.
WLUK-TV reports that the three employees were treated and released, WLUK-TV reported. Kloehn says the plant and residents within two blocks downwind of the facility were evacuated and brought to a nearby middle school.
