Five people released from hospital after incident at Vandalia factory

VANDALIA, Ohio (WDTN) — At least five people have been released from the hospital after a chemical incident at a Vandalia plastic factory.

Crews responded to All Service Plastic Molding on Falls Creek Drive Wednesday morning for reports of a possible hazmat situation.

The Vandalia fire chief said two chemicals at the factory mixed to create toxic fumes.

Many of the workers were suffering from headaches and respiratory issues. At least 10 people were transported to the hospital after the incident.

The factory was evacuated, and crews ventilated the building. The business reopened on Wednesday afternoon, operating normally, according to company officials.

Company officials say there are no plans to change any safety procedures after the incident.
