3 people hospitalized after chemical leak in Mt. Lebanon
Three people were taken to UPMC Mercy with minor inhalation irritation as a result of a sulfur dioxide leak in Mt. Lebanon.
An Allegheny County hazardous materials team was dispatched for a report of a smell Monday before 4 p.m. along Marlin Drive between Bower Hill Road and Jayson Avenue.
Mt. Lebanon police posted via Twitter that the odor was due to a leak from an old refrigerator, and a contractor and two firefighters were treated at the hospital.
Firefighters tweeted a short time later that the leak had been contained and there was no danger to the public.
