HAZMAT at chocolate factory

June 10, 2008 5:55:01 AM PDT
Chicago firefighters were back at the Blommer Chocolate Factory Monday morning for another emergency. Just after six this morning, crews were called to deal with a small fire and possible chemical leak at the Near North Side factory. The building was evacuated-- as emergency crews contained the fire and leak inside.

No one was hurt in this latest incident.

The scare follows another HAZMAT incident on Sunday morning where ammonia fumes killed 30-year-old Gerald Castillo and injured two of his co-workers.
