Two dozen sickened, some vomiting, in apparent chemical leak at Milwaukee business

Posted:
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WISN) -

Two dozen people were sickened, some vomiting, in an apparent chemical leak at a trucking company on the city's south side, a fire official said.

Firefighters were called to USF Holland near South 6th Street and West College Avenue shortly before 10 a.m. Thursday. The building had been evacuated by the time crews arrived with ambulances.

The fumes dissipated and their source not determined as of 1 p.m. No toxic material was located anywhere on the premises, Battalion Chief Schuyler Belott told WISN-TV, our Milwaukee affiliate.

Workers got the all-clear to return to the building after about two hours.
