LACONIA, N.H. (AP) - Firefighters have evacuated some homes in Laconia, N.H., after responding to a situation at an electronics company involving hazardous materials.
Firefighters were called to ABC Fabricators after 5 a.m. Tuesday.
It was not immediately clear what the problem was. A man who identified himself as the manager said there was a minor chemical spill involving nitric acid, but that it was being treated and cleaned. He said it was under control.
The company makes circuit boards.
