Souther Chester County Weeklies took to facebook this afternoon and reported the following:
“There has been a serious toxic liquid chemical incident at South Mill Mushrooms on South Street in Kennett Square. Many people have been injured and are being hospitalized. Even as many were taken away, fire police said they were expecting another nine ambulances to arrive. Fire companies from as far away as Lima and Modena and Rocky Run have arrived. At least two trucks from Chester County Hazmat have arrived.
Bystanders with some knowledge of the mushroom canning process have said several chemicals that are OK when alone become poisonous when they meet. The roads are being blocked off at great and greater circumferences. A worker who was as the scene said he saw people unconscious and others were trying to revive them.
1 p.m. Wednesday”
