Hazmat crews responded to City Creek mall Thursday night after a janitor accidently mixed two incompatible chemicals.
The janitor was working in an upper floor bathroom at 8:24 p.m. when he mixed the chemicals and inhaled the resulting fumes, according to Salt Lake City Fire spokesman Jasen Asay. The man was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure, Asay added, though he was expected to be fine.
Asay did not know what chemicals the janitor mixed or what types of fumes were produced. He said several other people in the vicinity reported smelling the fumes, but did not suffer any other adverse effects.
