The Toledo Club was evacuated for about three hours Friday and part of 14th Street was closed temporarily after swimming-pool chemicals were involved in a chemical reaction.

Two club employees suffered exposure, with one treated at the scene and the other taken to a hospital for evaluation, Toledo Fire Lt. Matthew Hertzfeld said.

Firefighters were summoned to the building at 235 14th St., near Madison Ave., about 3:05 p.m. after staff handling a pool chemical containing chlorine transferred it from one container to another, triggering a reaction that released vapor, the lieutenant said. It was not reported what might have reacted with the chlorine.
