RICHMOND, Ky. (WTVQ) – Chemical crews are no longer monitoring a storage unit after a vapor emission was detected last month at the Blue Grass Army Depot in Richmond, according to the U.S. Army.

The depot says crews detected a vapor emission in a storage unit that contained nerve agent-filled munitions on March 15, 2018.
