Otto Maass evacuated briefly after lab incident

Posted on Wednesday, October 31, 2012

An incident occurred in room 430 (a laboratory) near noon in the Otto Maass building. A reaction unexpectedly occurred in a flask and resulted in some charring and smoke.  There was no fire, no significant damage and no injuries.

Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) is conducting a full investigation. The clean up and follow up is expected to start tomorrow morning. In the meantime and until EHS gives the all clear, this area will be closed.
