    Emergency crews on Wednesday were called to Maine Medical Center's laundry center for a hazardous material situation, according to WCSH.

    Bleach mixed with another chemical, causing an unsafe reaction at the Westbrook facility. The mixture apparently caused a vapor cloud and started heating up. 

    The building was immediately evacuated. Between 50 and 60 firefighters and police officers responded to the scene.

    No injuries were reported.
