HazMat team cleans up spill at Mercer

Members of the Macon-Bibb County HazMat team and bomb squad responded to a call at Mercer University Wednesday evening after a science experiment went awry, university spokesman Mark Vanderhoek said.

Vanderhoek said a chemistry experiment led to a liquid by-product that was hazardous, and the teacher of the class called in the hazmat team.

No one was injured in the incident, and there was no damage to the building, Vanderhoek said. The spill was cleaned up by early Wednesday evening.
