Pool Chemicals Blamed For El Dorado Vapor Cloud

Posted: Updated:

No one was injured when several hundred people, including inmates at a jail were evacuated from parts of El Dorado. Officials now say a thick plume of chlorinated gas emerged from Clean Harbors recycling plant.

The Vice President of the company says they're still trying to find out what caused the chemicals to mix. They also say the mixture did not cause a fire at the plant. The vapor cloud was contained late Tuesday night.
