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.
