(KMOV) -- An ammonia leak forced close to 40 workers to evacuate the North Star ice cream plant in Brentwood Friday night.

No injuries were reported but many workers complained of irritated eyes from the fumes which filled the building.

Firefighters vented the plant and a repair crew was on site.

Ammonia is a necessary element used in refrigeration.
