The depot also reported a vapor emission at an igloo on Tuesday.

Both vapor emissions were from 115MM rockets, which are filled with GB, also known sarin.

Officials at the depot say a powered filter was connected to the igloo as a safety precaution to ensure the leak does not enter the outside atmosphere.

There is no danger or risk to people in Madison County or surrounding counties, according to depot officials.
