Fire-Rescue personnel and area medical personnel geared up for mass casualties when an industrial accident at a Baymeadows manufacturing facility Monday morning leaked a small amount of radiation.
The Unison Industries building in the 7500 block of Baymeadows Way was evacuated and police blocked streets in the area after a cylinder of krypton gas exploded in the facility about 10:45 a.m.
Unison spokesman Wayne Moles said he was not aware that any product used in their facility had a high radiation risk.
"That gas primary involves hydrogen, nitrogen,other elements, but has a small amount of krypton 85 in it, and that may have been the source of the readings that the fire department found," Moles said.
