Ammonia Leak at a Taylor Farms

According to a Salinas acting fire battalion chief Keith Emery, an ammonia system was being worked on and the cause of the leak was due to a valve failing.


A cloud of ammonia was seen.

The leak was outside so the fire department let the gas dissipate naturally.

Taylor farms was closed for about 2 hours.

There were no injuries.

The leak was repaired and secured.

Only about a dozen employees were working today.

Employees should be able to return to work this afternoon.

Roads were shut down in the area while firefighters responded, but are now open.

It is unknown how many people in total were evacuated.
