Burnsville apartments evacuated after pool chemical leak

A pool chemical leak forced firefighters to evacuate two apartment buildings in Burnsville Friday.

According to the Burnsville Fire Department, the leak began around 9 a.m. at Carrington Court Apartments on Evergreen Drive.

Upon arrival, crews found the chemicals were actively leaking, which led to the hospitalization of two people who suffered minor injuries as a result of inhaling them. The victims are in stable condition.

As of 3:16 p.m. the leak was cleaned up and residents were able to return to the buildings.

Dakota County's Special Operations Haz Mat Team assisted the Burnsville Fire Department in this process.
