SHELTON - First responders are on the scene of a hazardous material release in a factory Friday afternoon.

Shelton fire and police departments responded to Milestone Inc located at 25 Controls Drive in Shelton.

Initial calls reported an explosion, but after the fire department arrived it was determined that was not the case, said Detective Richard Bango.

An investigation revealed a small hydrofluoric acid spill occurred and vapor from the chemical reached the ventilation system causing the building to be evacuated.

There were no reported injuries.

Fire and hazmat crews are on scene and are expected to clear the building soon.
