Victims To Survive After Chemical Issue At Shopping Center

A chemical incident in Warwick on Thursday sent nine people to the hospital.

The incident took place at a shopping center off Quaker Lane at around 10:30 am when several people inside a health center began to feel nauseous and started vomiting.

Several neighboring businesses were evacuated.

State Department of Environmental Management investigators were on hand to conduct tests, and officials believe a mixture of cleaning chemicals was involved.

All those hospitalized are expected to recover.
