Danbury Hospital Hazmat Response Was Precautionary

A hazmat situation was declared in the Danbury Hospital parking garage Friday evening after two or three people reported an irritating chemical in the area, according to the fire department.

Investigators determined that some sort of pepper spray was discharged in the parking garage and launched a full hazmat response as a precaution, firefighters said.

The hospital was never locked down and no one was injured, according to Danbury fire officials.
