Official Says 30 Hospitalized After Hazmat Response at Massachusetts Plant


A possible chemical leak at a Massachusetts electronic cigarette manufacturer resulted in a hazmat response and the hospitalization of dozens of plant workers.

Officials say a hazmat team was called to the e-cigarette plant in Salem Sunday afternoon to investigate a reported chlorine leak, deeming the building safe around 8 p.m. Sunday. The state fire marshal’s office says multiple ambulances were called to the same scene about an hour later, where officials say 30 people were hospitalized after reported difficulty breathing and nausea, among other symptoms.

Salem Deputy Fire Brigade Commander Alan Dionne described the scene as “mass hysteria”, saying that he flew out of the building. Dionne says no deaths have been reported.
