Chlorine gas leaking from two canisters at the Fair Lawn Water Treatment plant on Saturday brought a host of responders and was quickly contained.

Fair Lawn and Hawthorne firefighters and the borough Heavy Rescue unit were dispatched to the Cadmus Place facility along with Bergen County HazMat and an ambulance from Saddle Brook.

Although some responders reported burns, none required immediate medical attention. No evacuations of area homes were evacuated.

A high school football game being played directly across the street from the plant also wasn't affected.
