A small ammonia leak at a business on Palmer Drive in Gainesville Friday afternoon led to the evacuation of all employees.

Gainesville Deputy Fire Chief Jerome Yarbrough said fire crews are attempting to find and repair the leak at National Beverage. He said the leak originated from the service line of a small tank in the building.

Employees were told to go home for the day and there were no reported injuries.
