HAMILTON, New Jersey — Officials are investigating a blaze that sent more than a dozen firefighters to hospitals in New Jersey.
NJ.com reports (http://bit.ly/1EZwXSH ) 13 firefighters were treated Wednesday after battling a blaze that ripped through two garages.
Officials say one of the garages had a container of chlorine in it that's typically used in pools. When it burned, it let off a gas that caused several respiratory injuries.
Officials moved bystanders and firefighters a block away from the incident as a chemical odor hung in the air.
Officials say a dozen firefighters had been taken to hospitals for respiratory testing and another was treated for facial burns.
Authorities from the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office are investigating the blaze.
