MADISON, Wis. — A custodian at the Wisconsin Department of Corrections accidentally created a toxic mixture of cleaning chemicals on Tuesday.
The Madison Fire Department responded to a report of a chemical spill at 5:30 pm, reported NBC 15 News. Paramedics were contacted when someone in the building reported difficulty breathing.
Officials said the custodian was preparing to clean a bathroom when she mixed lemon bleach and toilet bowl cleaner together. The combination is known to create chemicals that are toxic to humans, including hydrochloric acid and chlorine gas.
An incident report said the custodian poured the solution down the drain of a slop sink and left the building when she realized what happened.
She was evaluated by paramedics while firefighters examined the building for potential chemical hazards.
The rest of the corrections facility was never evacuated, and aside from a “slight odor of chlorine,” the department determined that the hazard had been controlled.
