Accident At La Crosse Cheese Plant Causes Evacuation

The La Crosse Fire Department says someone at the Great Lakes Cheese plant mixed the wrong two chemicals together Wednesday.

That caused a cloud which chased all the workers outside. Hazmat teams cleared the building quickly and everyone was able to return to work. Paramedics checked out two workers, but they didn't have to be taken to a hospital, and no others reported any injuries.
