SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - An acid spill at a downtown jewelry store prompted evacuations Monday morning.
It happened just before 11 a.m at the Jewelers Exchange in the 800 block of Sixth Avenue near F Street. Employees were reportedly attempting to transport a container of muriatic acid when it spilled.
Hazmat crews are at the scene, using soda ash to neutralize and absorb the chemical.
At least 25 people in the building were evacuated from the building. One woman was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
