A call came in about 11 a.m. regarding a leaking 2,000-pound container of chlorine in the 2900 block of South Halladay Street (map), Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi said.

The building was evacuated but no injuries were reported, he said.

The Irvine Ranch Water District building’s own hazmat team was responding alongside firefighters, and there was no threat to the public, Concialdi said on Twitter.

The building is designed to contain such leaks and has its own hazmat team, he said.
