Ammonia leak results in hazmat situation at Intel plant in Chandler

PHOENIX -- Authorities say a dozen people have been treated for exposure to ammonia after a chemical leak at the Intel plant in Chandler.

Chandler Fire Department officials say 10 people were treated at the scene Monday afternoon and two people were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Nearly 20 fire trucks and hazardous materials crews responded to the microchip making company's plant.

Fire officials were called at 1:30 p.m. after a construction crew struck a pipe carrying ammonia while they were working on renovations. That led to a spill of 100 gallons of ammonium hydroxide.
