PASADENA - One person is dead and three people were injured after a chemical release in Pasadena Saturday afternoon.
Firefighters are on the scene at the PeroxyChem plant at 12000 Bay Area Blvd. in the Bayport Industrial District.
One person suffered a broken arm, and two others were exposed to as much as 1000 gallons of chemicals. Authorities say that the chemicals were from cleaning materials.
It isn't clear how the deceased individual died.
The cause of the release is still under investigation, but the leak isn't expected to impact other employees, industrial neighbors, or the surrounding community.
