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.
