A 36-year-old woman suffered minor burns on her arms Monday morning when a small acid spill occurred at a Salt Lake City business.

Police and fire crews responded to the spill about 9:35 p.m. at Northrop Grumman, 2211 W. North Temple, said Salt Lake City police Detective Pat Wilkinson.

The woman, believed to be an employee, was treated quickly and taken to a hospital as a precaution. The woman was in good condition, Wilkinson said.

Salt Lake City fire spokesman Mark Bednarik said the woman was using Iso-Verre for stripping wire. She suffered second-degree burns, he said.

The spill was small enough that an evacuation was not necessary, Wilkinson said. No other injuries were reported.
