A reported chemical spill in Malott Hall on the KU campus turned out to be just water.
Emergency crews and a Hazmat unit were dispatched to the scene, 1251 Wescoe Hall Drive, after reports of the spill came in just before 2 a.m. Thursday.
An individual inside the building had reported a chemical with an odor was leaking from a container onto the floor. The building was evacuated about 2:01 a.m.
Crews searched the seven-story building and discovered the spill on the fifth floor.
KU Police Sgt. Gary Wieden said the liquid that had collected on the floor turned out to be water that had accumulated under a chemical container.
