Chemical release at Norwood business

NORWOOD, Ohio (WKRC) -- Emergency crews are at a chemical release at a Norwood business.

The chemical was released from a stack at Shepherd Chemical on Highland Avenue near Beech Street. That's an industrial area. Highland Avenue is closed at Beach.

Nitrogen oxide was released. Officials don't believe it to be dangerous.  As a precaution workers and five homes within 500 feet were told to shelter in place. That has since been lifted. The EPA will investigate how the chemical release happened.
