MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. — Officials in Baldwin County say patients and employees were evacuated from Central State Hospital's Craig Nursing Center after a chemical spill.

The Telegraph newspaper says patients and employees were treated for possible injuries from inhaling chemicals following the spill late Wednesday afternoon.

The hospital says firefighters determined the chemical spilled was sodium hydrochloride, a bleaching agent. Firefighters secured the scene and turned it over to the hospital’s administration for clean-up.
