(KSL News) Three cups of deadly mustard agent leaked from a weapon at the Deseret Chemical Depot in Tooele County.
The agent leaked from the weapon onto the concrete floor of a storage igloo.
Crews with protective clothing entered, and downwind monitoring equipment detected the agent's vapor even fifty feet away from the igloo.
Crews put the projectile in an airtight container and decontaminated the igloo.
Officials say there was no danger to surrounding communities.
