PITTSBURGH - A chlorine leak prompted an evacuation of a local pool Thursday.
Emergency crews said Highland Park pool was evacuated around 12:30 p.m.
Channel 11's Rick Earle reported that employees were moving a chlorine tank when the top of one broke off.
“The top snapped off. It’s a malfunction of the canister, so we did have a major leak here,” said Chief Operations Officer Guy Costa.
Crews alerted the nearby Pittsburgh Zoo.
“The zoo was notified because a lot of gas was blowing over the hill,” said Costa.
Costa said the manufacturer of the chlorine tank will be at the pool Friday to see what went wrong.
The pool reopened on Friday.
