TCC’s other buildings in downtown Norfolk were unaffected, officials say.
The substance was first detected around 10:20 a.m. Employees were told to evacuate as the Norfolk Fire Department was called. Fire officials were unable to identify either the type of chemical or its source. Several employees were seen by paramedics, and two were transported to the hospital.
An all-clear was issued around 11:30 a.m. once the building’s HVAC system had dissipated the chemical, officials tell NewsChannel 3.
About 225 employees work in the building.
