Chemical spill sends 5 to hospital

FORT ATKINSON, Wis. (AP) — A chemical spill at a Fort Atkinson manufacturing plant has sent five people to the hospital.

Fire officials say phosphoric acid spilled after a valve broke on a 330 gallon container at the Spacesaver Corp. plant early Tuesday. The plant was evacuated.

Fire Capt. Mark Schoenleber told WISC-TV five people exposed to the acid were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

The Jefferson County hazardous materials unit was called to clean up the spill.
