JAY, Maine (AP) - Officials at a Maine mill say a gas leak forced an evacuation of the building and sent four contractors to the hospital.

Verso Androscoggin Mill spokeswoman says Kathi Rowzie says a valve was left open at the Jay-area mill, releasing chlorine dioxide gas. The Sun Journal reports no one was injured and the contractors were hospitalized as a precaution after the gas was detected by sensors.

Officials say an incident report, which is standard protocol at the mill, will be submitted by Friday.
