GONZALES, LA (WAFB) - More than a dozen people received medical treatment after a chlorine leak was reported at Occidental Petroleum in Gonzales on Monday.

Louisiana State Police Hazmat responded to the chlorine gas release. Troopers said about 15 people were treated for possible exposure.
According to officials, there was no off-site impact from the leak.
The leak forced the closure of Ashland Road between LA 30 and LA 75. All lanes were reopened before 8:30 a.m.
