A chemical spill at Trigg Hall forced the evacuation of the campus of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

The spill occurred yesterday around noon when a glass container of ammonium hydroxide was knocked over in a storage area next to an agricultural lab during renovations.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that there were no reports of injuries but that the contractor taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.

Four others who breathed in the fumes decline treatment and no students were involved.
