Baltimore County Police: No Chlorine Spill in Sparrows Point
An unusual odor in the Greater Dundalk area Friday was caused by torches being used to cut through rusted steel as the former Sparrows Point steel plant is being dismantled.
"The odor in "Sparrows Point today (was) caused by workers using torches to slice through rusted steel," police spokeswoman Elise Armacost said today via the department's Twitter account. "Rumors of a chlorine leak are false."
