South Lansing returning to normal after chemical incident

By Mark Bashore, WKAR

A section of south Lansing is returning to normal after a chemical incident led to an evacuation order Tuesday. Authorities say a chlorine-based chemical triggered a reaction after it was accidentally mixed with another chemical. The incident created a small amount of chlorine gas.

Some residents near the facility on Wise Road left their homes. A few other buildings and a park were also cleared.

All roads closed because of the incident have reopened. No injuries were reported.
