INDIANAPOLIS — Fire Department officials say up to 1,000 gallons of sulfuric acid leaked from a storage take at a chemical business near downtown Indianapolis.
City fire Lt. Bonnie Hensley says no one was injured from the leak that was reported about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday, around an hour after a worker at General Chemical first noticed it.
Hensley says the acid was contained within a couple hours. She says that much of the sulfuric acid remaining in the 18,000-gallon tank was transferred into a tanker truck and other storage tanks in the industrial area just south of the city's downtown.
Officials say the leak was in a pipe leading from the tank.
