Chicago firefighters responded to a hazardous materials call at a South Side factory. The World's Finest Chocolate building on South Lawndale was evacuated just after 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The night shift was on the job when a fire broke out inside. The fire broke a line that was attached to an ammonia tank, which then began leaking.

Firefighters were able to contain the leak, and no injuries have been reported.
