(KSL TV) The Megaplex Theater at Salt Lake City's Gateway was evacuated Monday evening, after a hazardous material scare.

Theater officials called 911 after an inside sprinkler line broke, and began leaking an unknown substance.

Investigators say the material was a substance similar to anti-freeze, that does not pose a real medical hazard.

Still, crews decontaminated two people.

Dennis McKone/ Salt Lake City Fire Department: "We do have two people that got doused a little bit. We've taken them over and de-conned them, sprayed them off, got them all cleaned up."

About 100 people were inside the theater at the time.
