Anniston Chemical Disposal Alarm

Anniston Chemical Disposal

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.
