Crews were called to the plant on Trade Street around 1:00 AM Monday. They were able to locate the source of the ammonia leak a few hours later, and all gas has been removed from the lines.

Third shift employees were sent home, while two others were sent to the hospital as a precaution.

It's unclear what caused the leak.
