INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities say workers were evacuated from a Rolls-Royce facility in Indianapolis because of an acid spill.
No injuries were reported among the 12 workers who were at the facility on the city's west side near Indianapolis International Airport early Thursday.
Wayne Township fire Lt. Troy Wymer tells WTHR-TV that a valve failed, causing three types of acid to mix in an aluminum drum and then eat through the drum. He says a hazardous materials team was able to contain and neutralized the spill.
Rolls-Royce has research facilities and an aircraft engine factory in Indianapolis.
