INSTITUTE, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Two workers were taken to the hospital after a chemical spill.
It happened just before 3:00 p.m. Saturday at Catalyst Refinery.
Emergency responders say the company lost 75 gallons of nitric acid when an accident happened inside the production area. It's unclear at this time exactly what caused it.
Two workers were taken to the hospital; one suffered burns and the other was having breathing issues.
The Institute Fire Department responded as a precaution, but the company was able to handle everything internally.
There is no evidence of acid outside the building.
The company is in the process of neutralizing the acid to make it safe inside.
Emergency managers will follow up with company Monday to determine the cause.
