At 5:29 p.m., a hose leading from a tanker semi-truck loaded with anhydrous ammonia broke, releasing a plume of ammonia. Fire fighters were called to the site to evacuate residents within a 1 mile area around the bulk storage plant. Fire fighters were also sent into the plant to spray water on the tanker, which had a 95 percent loss of its 20 ton load. Fire fighters #1 through #13 were then sent to the hospital for routine checkups; mild redness of the skin was noted.
