A MFD deputy chief says the spill occurred when a worker inside the pool building stepped on a pail of chlorine – causing it to spill.

Fire crews were dispatched just after 4:00 p.m., and were finished cleaning up by 6:15 p.m.

The incident began around 3:30 p.m.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb
    usability and visual appearance. I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari.
    Superb Blog!
