ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A St. Louis pharmaceutical company had to be evacuated after a chemical spill Thursday night.

Mallinckrodt, located in the 3600 block of North Second Street, was evacuated at 9:00 p.m. after about 20 gallons of Toluene was spilled inside the facility. Officials say the spill occurred during a normal process where the chemical is mixed with water, this time it just happened to overflow and spill.

St. Louis Firefighters were called to the scene for support because Mallinckrodt has their own fire department and emergency response team.

No injuries were reported.

As of Friday morning, the clean-up process was ongoing.
