AU Building Evacuated Due to Gas Cylinder Leak

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -Auburn spokesman Mike Clardy said there were no injuries from the leak, which was discovered Thursday morning in the Walker Pharmacy Building, which houses classrooms and administrative offices along with the pharmacy.

The area around the building was cordoned off until a Lee County
hazardous materials team could remove the leaking cylinder.

Hydrogen chloride can irritate nasal passages and cause burns,
but Clardy said no one was harmed. The building returned to normal
operations shortly after noon.
