One worker was injured when a chemical began leaking inside an Akron factory early Tuesday morning.
The worker, whose name was not released, was being treated at a local hospital for nonlife-threatening injuries, officials said.
Akron fire department hazardous material crews were called to Hygenic Corp., 1245 Home Ave., at about 2:30 a.m. after workers detected a chlorine cylinder leak and fumes inside the factory.
Workers were evacuated before Akron firefighters arrived. Akron police were called to the scene to detour traffic.
The cause of the leak has not been determined. Firefighters capped the leak about 4:15 a.m. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency was notified of the incident.
