CHEMICAL LEAK PROMPTS EVACUATION

A chemical leak just before 9 p.m. Sunday prompted a short-lived evacuation of residents around the VanDeMark Chemical Co. on North Transit Road, city fire officials said.

Fire crews responded to the leak of an unidentified chemical at the plant at 8:57 p.m. and promptly began a perimeter evacuation, which was ended soon after officials conferred with VanDeMark officials, a fire spokesman said.
