(KSL News) -- About 100 residents of a Sandy nursing home were forced out in the cold Tuesday night.

A worker at the Crossland Rehab Center mixed some cleaning chemicals that reacted, sending a strong odor throughout the building.

Residents huddled under blankets outside until Hazmat teams gave them the 'all clear', that the fumes were NOT dangerous.

No one was seriously hurt.
