The fire department doesn't know exactly what happened. It happened at ACS. About 20 employees, working in a call center, complained of having a headache, difficulty breathing, and feeling nauseous, and they said they smelled something like glue.

Those employees were evacuated, and the fire department and HAZMAT were called. Those teams used sensors that detect chemicals but didn't find anything.

The fire department still doesn't know what happened.

Capt. Michael White: "We sent the HAZMAT team in with some specialized sensors to check the room that was a concern, and that has come back all clear. They are not picking up anything at all."

A few people were treated and everyone was allowed back in the building. Four people were taken to the hospital as a precaution, but officials tell us none of them is in serious condition.
