An ammonia leak that caused 2 people to be taken to the hospital was at the center of it all. Both people were having trouble breathing, but they are expected to be okay.
It all unfolded last night at Food Lion's distribution center in Prince George County off of Route 460.
An alarm went off inside the warehouse after a compressor for one of the refrigeration units at the center broke, leaking ammonia gas into the air.
As soon as that alarm went off, everything was shut off and the distribution center was evacuated.
Emergency responders say the cleanup was easier since the gas evaporated into the air.
It took hazmat crews a little over an hour to make sure everything was okay, and the distribution center was reopened around 2:30 Thursday morning.
