• Building at UCF reopens after hydrochloric acid spill


    ORLANDO, Fla. - A chemical spill on the University of Central Florida campus prompted evacuations Friday morning.

    Authorities said hazmat crews were called when less than 2 liters of hydrochloric acid spilled in a classroom in the College of Research and Education in Optics and Lasers' Creol building.

    The building was evacuated for about an hour and a half while hazmat crews cleaned the spill. It has since reopened.

    No injuries were reported.
