Just after 1:30 p.m., The City of Pittsburgh Hazardous Materials (HazMat) Team responded to reports of an ammonia leak at Consumers Produce, 1 21st Street in the Strip District. One person was transported to the hospital.
It was determined the leak happened during repair work.
The leak resulted in a strong odor similar to cleaning fluid in the area, but does not present a hazard.
Responders secured a loose pipe flange to stop the leak and worked with building management to contain and clean up any residual liquid ammonia.
HazMat is a joint effort between the Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire and the Pittsburgh Bureau of EMS.
