Building at UCF reopens following chemical spill

Posted: Updated:

A building at the University of Central Florida has reopened following evacuation due to a chemical spill which happened shortly after 10 a.m. Friday morning.

Campus police, fire rescue and a hazardous materials team responded to a spill in a room on the first floor of a building which houses labs for the College of Optics and Photonics.  There were no injuries, and the hazmat team declared the building safe for reentry around noon.

Due to the closure, shuttle routes that typically stop near the Health and Public Affairs buildings were rerouted to the stop in lot C3 near the Physical Sciences building.  Routes affected were 6, 8 and 13.

Students, faculty and staff were notified of the closure through UCF Alert email and text messages, a university spokesperson said.
