Chlorine spill prompts evacuations in University City

SAN DIEGO -- An estimated 30 gallons of chlorine spilled Monday afternoon near the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center in La Jolla, prompting the evacuations of about 400 children.

A San Diego Fire and Rescue Department hazardous materials crew is at the scene in the 4100 block of Executive Drive.

Forty children remained sheltered in place while the hazmat team "develops plan and mitigates situation," according to a tweet by SDFD. The other children were picked up by their parents.
