An ammonia leak at a plant in Hopewell has sent two workers to a hospital.
Hopewell city spokesman Herbert Bragg says the leak occurred inside a tank at the Lindie Corp. plant.
Media outlets report that nearby schools suspended outdoor activities as a precaution after the leak occurred Thursday morning.
Firefighters say the employees were exposed to ammonia that they thought had been purged from a pipe. They were taken to a local hospital for observation.
The leak has been contained. Firefighters say there wasn't any risk to the public.
