        There were some anxious moments Monday night in Nicholasville where some people were told to stay indoors while others were evacuated because of a chemical leak.

        The Jessamine County Emergency Management Director said nitric acid was being mixed at Aulick Chemical off Industry Parkway when a leak developed.

      Firefighters and hazardous material teams were called in.

     As a precaution, a dozen homes in Tuscany Village off of Ashgrove Road were evacuated as the spill was contained. 

      Meantime, a dark cloud formed in the Eisenhower Court area as the acid reacted after coming in contact with concrete.

     Officials said no one was hurt during the spill or clean-up.   

      Fire departments from Nicholasville, Lexington, Winchester, Versailles and Lancaster responded to the scene.
