All clear after minor chemical spill at Auburn

Posted: Updated:

Auburn University says a minor chemical spill in a building on campus has been cleaned up and the building has been cleared for normal operations.

The university sent out an alert Thursday afternoon warning students about a hazardous materials spill in Funchess Hall on College Street.

University officials say the Auburn Fire Department and Opelika HAZMAT team responded and cleaned up the chemicals.

A cabinet of chemicals reportedly fell over in a lab. One person was transported to the hospital as a precautionary measure and was later released.
