Anniston Chemical Disposal Alarm

Army officials say there is no threat to the community in Anniston after the closing of its Alabama chemical weapons incinerator.

An alarm indicated a possible leak of deadly Sarin Nerve Gas inside a main building.

The incinerator was destroying rockets filled with gelled or crystallized GB Nerve Agent, known as Sarin, when the alarm sounded about 4:39 Wednesday afternoon.

Officials are trying to determine the source of the chemical agent that caused the alarm.
