Authorities evacuated an academic building at the University of Notre Dame following a small chemical explosion in a laboratory.
University spokesman Dennis Brown says the explosion occurred Monday morning on the third floor of the Stinson-Remick Hall of Engineering.
He says “a staff member was working with some acidic solutions and there was a small explosion. The acid washed up onto her so she was treated immediately.”
Brown says the unidentified staff member was transported to a hospital as a precaution.
The building was expected to reopen later Monday.
