Ammonia leak in Kent County

A Kent County elementary school has been evacuated, after an ammonia leak at the Hanover Foods plant in Smyrna.

Officials with the Clayton Fire Department say they're trying to locate the exact source of the leak, but have traced it to the plant located at North Main Street and Duck Creek Road.

Students from the Clayton Elementary School have been evacuated as a precaution, but officials say no one has gotten sick as a result of the smell.

They say people in the immediate area should remain indoors, and keep windows closed.
