Hazmat team responds to UW dorm after several report feeling sickon November 19, 2012 @ 6:29 am (Updated: 6:41 am - 11/19/12 )
"One of the workers walked into one of the walk-in freezers and said that they smelled something funny and then a few minutes later several workers in the area started feeling light-headed and nauseous," says Kyle Moore with the Seattle Fire Department.
KIRO TV reports the residence hall was evacuated for about two hours while crews investigated.
Moore says they found no hazardous materials leak and the people who initially said they felt sick later said they felt better.
The cause of why the people were sick is unknown at this time, and the incident is still under investigation.
KIRO Editor Val Stouffer and the Associated Press contributed to this report.
