Chemical leak causing concerns in Jessamine County

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky.(WKYT)- Firefighters, Haz-Mat crews, and other emergency officials are on the scene of a Chemical Leak in Nicholasville.

Jessamine County Emergency Management officials an accident at Aulick Chemical, off Industry Parkway in Nicholasville, has released some nitric acid into the air.

Investigators say the acid was being kept inside a concrete barrier, but it leaked, and turned into a gas once it hit the outside air.

An orange colored haze has been seen in the area.

As a precaution, emergency management officials recommend people living between U.S. 27 and Tates Creek Road, south of Ash Grove Road, stay indoors.

Businesses along nearby Eisenhower Court have also been evacuated.

However, officials say the nitric acid gas is dissipating in the air, and is not considered a major health threat in the immediate area.

No one has been injured as a result of this leak. Firefighters, Haz-Mat crews, and emergency officials are working to contain the leak.

WKYT has a crew at the scene. We'll have updates here on and the latest tonight on WKYT News at 11.
