According to Reuters, A chemical spill in a small Illinois village north of Chicago on Thursday sent at least 31 people to hospitals and forced nearby residents to shut their windows and shelter in place, authorities said.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office said that those sent to hospitals with “inhalation issues,” none of which were life-threatening, included three law enforcement officers who were overcome after responding to a spill of anhydrous ammonia in Beach Park, Illinois.
