One person is being treated for minor respiratory issues after an incident at the Georgia Poultry Lab Network in Oakwood, said Scott Cagle, spokesman for Hall County Fire Services. Firefighters and hazardous material crews responded to reports of a chemical leak at the lab around noon Friday. Workers were evacuated and isolated outside the building, but fears of ammonia or hydrochloric acid spill turned out to be a false alarm.
