Chemical mixture sends workers to hospital

HOUSTON Around lunchtime, a lab worker at a business on Hollister at Hillmont in northwest Houston discarded some chemicals in a bucket, causing a reaction. The mixture created sulfuric acid and nitric acid. Houston Fire Department and HazMat units were called to the scene.

No evacuations were called for and there's no threat to the community. Two workers were taken to an area hospital to be checked out as a precaution.
