Alexandria 911 center evacuated over fumes
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - Alexandria's 911 call center has been temporarily relocated after fumes in the city's public safety building prompted an evacuation.
Firefighters were called to the building on Mill Road on Sunday morning to investigate an odor and found a contractor applying a chemical sealant to a locker room floor.
Alexandria fire officials say the fumes from the sealant were causing headaches for workers in the 911 call center and workers were moved to the city's back-up dispatch center. Seven city employees were evaluated, but none required medical assistance.
Officials say 911 and non-emergency services have not been disrupted and the back-up call center will remain in operation until at least 6 a.m. Monday.
